One man died Monday in a single-vehicle accident in the Holmwood area, authorities said.

The man — John R. Rentrop, 27, of 6547 Rossignol Road in Bell City — was traveling south on Fruge Road near La. 14 at about 7:45 p.m. when he crossed the center line, overcorrected and drove into the ditch, said Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers.

She said he was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. Deputies didn’t know if he was impaired, but standard toxicology tests are being conducted, Myers said.
