One person is dead after a vehicle went into a canal this morning in New Orleans East.
"We are working a traffic fatality at Newcastle Street and Morrison Road," Officer Juan Barnes said in an email. "(It) occurred around 5:51 a.m."
Police got the call just before daylight.
"A 2005 Cadillac CTS was traveling eastbound on Morrison Road when for reasons unknown lost control, hit the curve, flipped on it's top and landed in the Morrison canal. The male diver was pronounced dead on the scene."
