Sheriff's office school crossing guard struck, killed in Lafourche Parish

Larry Boudreaux

A school traffic guard who worked for the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office was struck and killed this morning while directing traffic on LA 20 near Chackbay Elementary School.

"It is with the greatest sorrow and regret that I announced the line of duty death of Larry Boudreaux, one of our dedicated school traffic guards," said Sheriff Craig Webre. "We are praying for Larry, his wife, and their two daughters during this extremely difficult time."

Boudreaux, an Army veteran, began working for the sheriff's office as a crossing guard in 2016 in Bayou Blue before being reassigned to Chackbay. He also spent time volunteering at the sheriff's office shooting range.

Louisiana State Police is handling the investigation.
