Lacombe – On Friday August 10, 2019 at 8:52 PM, Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop L responded to a single vehicle fatal crash on US 190 near Transmitter Rd. in St. Tammany Parish. The crash has claimed the life of 55-year-old Mark D. Quillin of Lacombe.

The initial investigation led Troopers to determine Quillin was driving a 2001 GMC Sierra westbound on US 190 near Transmitter Rd. Physical evidence observed on scene suggested that Quillin’s front right tire had deflated and was riding on the rim. The vehicle traveled off the right side of the roadway onto the gravel shoulder and into a ditch beyond the right side of the roadway.

After exiting the roadway, the vehicle overturned. Quillin was unrestrained at the time of the crash. He sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased on scene. As part of the ongoing investigation, blood samples were collected for analysis.

Troopers would like to remind motorists of the importance of safe decisions behind the wheel. Please take a moment to speak with your loved ones about the importance of their safe decisions. Remind them to always wear a seatbelt, never drive impaired, and to avoid distractions. The conversation could be the difference in a serious crash.
