Early morning on Sunday, November 24, 2019, the Beauregard Parish Sheriff’s Office received a call regarding a vehicle in the ditch at Highway 112 and Three Pine Church Rd.

Deputies responded to that area and discovered the vehicle was unoccupied and posed as a road hazard. They maintained traffic control until the vehicle could be removed.

A truck traveling east on Hwy 112 failed to yield to an emergency vehicle and struck a deputy who was directing traffic. The deputy was transported to a hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

The driver who failed to stop was identified as Coby Thibodeaux of DeRidder. Thibodeaux has active warrants with BPSO pertaining to this incident as well as from a previous unrelated investigation.

Thibodeaux was located and booked in the Beauregard Parish Jail for felony hit and run and driving without a valid driver’s license. He is currently being held without bond.
