Belle Rose Man to Serve 5 Years in Prison in Connection with 2017 Crash

          On last week, Brandon Davis of 196 Freetown Lane Belle Rose, LA., age 30, pled guilty to Hit and Run Driving with Serious Bodily Injury. Davis was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Lana Chaney, and presiding over this matter was the Honorable Judge Tess Stromberg. This guilty plea was the result of a plea agreement with prosecutors following a 2017 car crash.    

          On December 25, 2017, troopers with Louisiana State Police responded to a two-vehicle crash on LA 1 at the LA 998 bridge in Belle Rose. A thorough crash investigation indicated that Davis was traveling westbound crossing the LA 998 bridge and ignored a stop sign while approaching LA 1. Davis’ vehicle collided into the passenger side of a vehicle traveling northbound on LA 1. Davis’ vehicle came to rest in the intersection before bursting into flames. The second vehicle came to rest off the roadway. The occupants of the second vehicle sustained minor and moderate injuries. Upon exiting his vehicle, Davis fled the scene on foot. He was later identified and apprehended by authorities.

          Upon entering a guilty plea to the above-mentioned charge, pursuant to the plea agreement with prosecutors, Davis was sentenced to 5 years with the Louisiana Department of Corrections with credit for time served.
