Kenner Police investigating traffic crash fatality

 

KENNER - The Kenner Police Department is presently investigating a traffic crash fatality that occurred in the 1100 block of Joe Yenni Boulevard in Kenner.  At approximately 11:37 p.m. on Sunday, November 7, 2010 the Kenner Police Department responded to a single vehicle crash. 

A preliminary investigation revealed the driver, identified as Kyle David Chryssoverges, 20, of Kenner was driving a 2003 Ford F-150 pickup truck, white in color, westbound on Joe Yenni Boulevard.  The vehicle veered from its lane of travel and struck a drain culvert.  After striking the drainage culvert, the vehicle overturned and came to rest upside down submerged in the drainage canal. 

Chryssoverges was transported to Ochsner Kenner where his death was pronounced.   Autopsy and toxicology tests are pending.  Speed is believed to be a factor in the traffic crash.

Chief Steve Caraway urges anyone who witnessed this traffic fatality crash to call Traffic Investigator William Bagert at (504) 712-2371.
