The old man was up early on December 6th as he likely usually is. Around 6 am he went out to his mailbox in the 7500 block of Choupique Road in Sulphur and was struck and injured by a southbound car.

The car is believed to be a 2008-2013 Nissan Sentra and will be absent one passenger side mirror. The mirror hit the 84-year old's hand so hard it took off the mirror and the man is recovering in hospital with a severe injury to his hand.

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact Sgt. Bryan Guth in reference to CPSO case number: 18-150599. You may call the CPSO at 337-491-3667.
