Chief David Richard was killed when he lost control of his vehicle while responding to assist officers with a vehicle pursuit.

Chief Richard was traveling eastbound on U.S. Route 190 and lost control of his vehicle before he could become involved in the pursuit. His vehicle left the roadway and struck several trees, ejecting him from the car. He died at the scene of the crash as a result of his injuries.

The vehicle being pursued crashed and all four occupants fled, but were arrested early the next morning.

Chief Richard had served as Chief of Police for the Port Barre Police Department for five years. He is survived by his wife and four children.
