Miller lost control of his vehicle and traveled off the roadway through a guard rail and down an embankment.

His vehicle came to rest on its roof submerged in a drainage ditch. Although Miller was properly restrained,he suffered fatal injuries due to the severity of the crash and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Calcasieu Parish Coroner’s Office.
