Unrestrained Driver Killed, Deputy Injured in Head-On Collision
BATON ROUGE – A head-on collision involving an East Feliciana Sheriff’s Deputy last night resulted in the death of a Clinton man and serious injury of the deputy. At approximately 10:00 p.m. on LA 67, Marques L. Blakes (B/M, age 57) of Clinton was driving a 1994 Ford pickup north on LA 67 when he came upon a 2005 Dodge pickup that had stopped, preparing to turn left into a private drive. Blakes applied the brakes, began to skid, and veered left into the southbound lane. As the Ford pickup crossed the centerline and entered the southbound lane, its front left struck the front left of a 2001 Ford Crown Victoria, being driven by Deputy Richard J. Styles, Jr. (W/M, age 37) of Baker. The Crown Victoria, an East Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s Office patrol unit, was traveling south on LA 67. After the initial collision, the Ford pickup rotated counterclockwise and its rear bumper struck the left side of the Dodge pickup, which was still stopped on LA 67, facing north.
Acadian Ambulance transported Blakes to Layne Memorial Hospital, where hospital staff pronounced him deceased due to his injuries. Acadian also transported Deputy Styles to Layne Memorial Hospital with moderate injuries. Neither Blakes nor Styles were wearing a seat belt when the crash occurred. The driver of the Dodge Pickup, Clifford F. Starks, Sr. (W/M, age 64) of Slaughter and his son, Clifford F. Starks, Jr. (W/M, age 44) of Slaughter were both wearing seatbelts and neither sustained any injuries in the crash.
Alcohol use by Blakes is unknown at this time, but Troopers have submitted a sample of his blood to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for Chemical Analysis.
Deputy Richard Stiles succumbed to injuries sustained four days earlier when his patrol car was struck head-on by a pickup truck on Plank Road.
The driver of the pickup truck swerved into Deputy Stiles' lane to avoid striking a car that was attempting to make a left turn. The driver of the pickup truck was also killed.
Deputy Stiles had served with the East Feliciana Parish Sheriff's Department for one year.
Very Sad Rest easy my brother and my thoughts and prayers with the family and friends of the fallen.

Rest in peace, Deputy Styles. Condolences to family, friends and colleagues.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
