Church Point – Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop I began investigating to a two-vehicle fatal crash at the intersection of US Hwy 190 and LA Hwy 752 in St. Landry Parish on October 5, 2020, shortly before 9:15 a.m. The crash claimed the life of 78-year-old Ray Dulpechin and 64-year-old Paul Young of Church Point.
The preliminary investigation revealed a 2006 Chevrolet S10 pickup truck, driven by Duplechin, entered the intersection in an attempt to cross over the eastbound lanes of travel of US 190 from Belleau Road onto LA 752. As the Chevrolet entered the intersection, it was struck by an eastbound 2004 Ford pickup truck. After the impact, both vehicles ran off the right side of the roadway before coming to rest.
Duplechin, who was properly restrained, and his unrestrained passenger, suffered fatal injuries as a result of the crash and were pronounced dead on scene. The driver of the Ford was properly restrained and was not injured.
Impairment is unknown as a factor at this time and toxicology reports are pending. The crash remains under investigation.
