The St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office is investigating a death in an apparent hit-and-run involving a bullet-riddled car.
Deputies responded to what was thought to be a single-vehicle accident at 3:23 a.m. Sunday on Interstate 10 west bound between Mile Markers 217 and 219.
An investigation indicates there may have been a collision with a white or light colored vehicle that may be a possible hit and run.
Once first responders arrived on the scene, it was discovered the crashed vehicle, a 2006 silver Chrysler Sebring, had what appeared to be numerous bullet holes, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
A deceased male subject, not yet identified by the Sheriff’s Office, was located inside the vehicle. Other occupants in the vehicle were transferred to a local area hospital for nonlife-threatening injuries.
The investigation is ongoing.
Anyone with information about the incident or traveling on I-10 west bound between Kenner and LaPlace around the time of the crash is urged to contact Detective Jenni Barrette of the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office at (985) 783-1135 or (985) 783-6807.
