Catholic High tennis coach killed in crash Monday afternoon

BATON ROUGE – A high school tennis coach from Baton Rouge was killed Monday after his vehicle went off-road and struck a tree. 

According to Louisiana State Police, the wreck happened around 4 p.m. Monday along LA 307 in Lafourche Parish.

Kyle Jackson, 31, died in the crash. Jackson spent years at Catholic High School, where he worked as the tennis coach.

Investigators said Jackson apparently overcorrected his vehicle at a curve in the road, veered off the highway and struck a tree. Jackson was wearing a seatbelt at the time, but he died at the scene.

State Police is still investigating the crash and says it’s unclear whether other factors played a role.
