James E. Tipper, 42, of New Llano, passed away at Rapides Regional Medical Center in Alexandria as a result of injuries suffered in the accident, which occurred at approximately 7:40 a.m. Thursday. Tipper was not on duty when the accident occurred, according to officials.

The Louisiana State Police report that Tipper was driving a 1985 AMC Jeep on U.S. 171 South and was preparing to make a right-hand turn onto Leach Road when Jeffrey C. Townsend, 27, of Ormond Beach, Fla. who was also traveling on U.S. 171 South, collided with Tipper's vehicle. After the collision, Tipper's vehicle overturned several times.

Townsend was not wearing his seatbelt, but was not injured. Tipper was not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected from his vehicle.
