On Sunday, July 31, 2022, shortly before 1:30 a.m., Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop D responded to a single-vehicle fatal crash on LA Hwy 112 near Soapstone Road in Allen Parish.
Initial reports indicate a 2001 Dodge pickup truck driven by 34-year-old Cody Allen Reeves of Sugartown, LA, was traveling east on LA 112 when he lost control of the vehicle and traveled off the roadway to the right. The Dodge then traveled back across the roadway, struck a tree, and overturned.
Reeves was unrestrained at the time of the crash and was ejected from the vehicle. He suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Speed is also suspected to be a factor in this crash. A toxicology sample was obtained from Reeves and will be submitted for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.
