The crash involved a 2006 Nissan Sentra driven by Gregory Perrilloux, 53, of Reserve and a 2007 Toyota Corolla driven by 58-year-old Lynn S. Taravella of Destrehan. According to State Police, the Nissan was traveling eastbound on River Road at a high rate of speed when the driver crossed the center line of the two lane roadway striking the Toyota driven by Taravella head on as she headed in the opposite direction.
The Perrilloux of the Nissan suffered fatal injuries as a result of the crash and was pronounced dead on the scene. His identity is being withheld pending notification of his next of kin.
Taravella, the driver of the Toyota, was seriously injured in the crash and was taken the St. Charles Parish Hospital for treatment.
Joseph Piglia, Spokesman for State Police Troop B, said speed is being considered as a factor in the crash and impairment on the part of the Nissan is undetermined pending toxicology reports. Troopers said Perrilloux was not wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash.
An hour after the accident occurred, the owner of the Nissan, Kayla S. Kennedy of Reserve, reported the 2006 Nissan Sentra stolen. Further information obtained by the state police revealed that Kennedy did not know the driver who allegedly stole her car.
Senior Trooper A. Rickmeier is continuing his investigation into the accident.

$500 Bunge gift cards on hold until construction date set - 630 views
In order to ease the concerns of residents who live near Bunge North America in Destrehan, the grain elevator promised $500 gift cards to 100 residents if the St. Charles Parish Council approved a zoning change that would pave the way for a $50 million construction project. The council gave Bunge the OK in October, but the gift cards have yet to materialize.
