BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office is investigating a chase and crash that left a burglary suspect dead on Monday, May 9.

Authorities have identified the suspect as 27-year-old Dylan B. Breard.

According to EBRSO, detectives spotted Breard driving a vehicle, which was tied to multiple burglaries in the area, as it was leaving a business on O’Neal Lane. Investigators said the business had just been burglarized.

Deputies said they tried to pull over Breard on Honeywell Avenue but the suspect wouldn’t stop and eventually turned onto Central Thruway.

According to EBRSO, while Breard was on Central Thruway, he overcorrected, causing the vehicle to cross into the oncoming lane of traffic. Investigators explained the vehicle then went down a grass embankment underneath the bridge and slammed into a concrete pillar around 4 am.

Breard was pronounced dead at the scene, officials said.
