A St. Louis area man is dead following a one vehicle crash at 5:30 Wednesday morning on US 54 at Louisiana.

The Missouri Highway Patrol says a minivan driven by 33 year old Gary Fondren of St. Peters went off the road and hit a speed limit sign and concrete culvert. Troopers say the minivan crossed Doughterty Pike and overturned before striking a mobile home. Fondren was pronounced dead by Pike County Coroner Jim Turner.
