Late Night UTV Crash on LA 5 Claims the Life of Louisiana Man

Louisiana – Louisiana State Police reported on July 11, 2022, that on July 10, 2022, just before 11:00 p.m., Troopers assigned to LSP Troop G began investigating a one-vehicle fatality crash involving a (UTV) utility terrain vehicle on LA Hwy 5 at the intersection of Bates Road. Jaquentin Brokenberry, 30, of Frierson, Louisiana, was killed in the crash.
The initial investigation revealed that a Brokenberry was driving a 2016 Can-Am UTV north on LA Hwy 5. He ran off the road, overturned, and was ejected as he attempted to turn onto Bates Road.

Brokenberry was not wearing a seat belt or a DOT-approved helmet, according to Louisiana State Police. He was taken to Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport, where he was pronounced dead.

Troopers would like to emphasize the importance of wearing approved helmets and seat belts when operating any off-road vehicle. Off-road vehicles (three-wheelers, four-wheelers, and other all-terrain vehicles) are also dangerous and illegal to operate on any public roadway in this state.

So far in 2022, Troop G has investigated 21 fatal crashes, resulting in 22 deaths.
