Very early Sunday morning, a Deville teen died in a single-vehicle crash in Grant Parish.
He’s been identified as 18 year-old Benjamin Austin Williford. Troopers say he lost control on Highway 8, went off the road and hit some trees. His pick-up then flipped over.
Troopers say Williford was not wearing a seat belt and was pronounced dead at the scene. Routine toxicology tests are pending, and the crash remains under investigation.
