Sheriff Newell Normand reports, this afternoon, around 12:30, Traffic Fatality investigator Karl Burge responded to a single vehicle accident at 3701 Division St. in Metairie.
Officer Burge's investigation revealed, a 2010 Kia Soul, being driven by 69-year-old Carlo Musmeci of 6324 Bamboo Street in Diamondhead Mississippi was traveling southbound in the 3700 block of Division Street when the the vehicle left the roadway and struck a storage building at that location.
Carlo Musmeci was transported to East Jefferson General Hospital and pronounced dead shortly after arrival. Based on the initial findings of Officer Burge's investigation, and the fact that Mr. Musmeci had minor injuries, it appears he may have suffered some type of medical condition prior to striking the building.
The Jefferson Parish Corner's Office will perform and autopsy on Carlo Musmeci in order to determine his cause of death.
