It was Christmas night on Dec. 25, shortly before 11 p.m., Sheriff Pohlmann said, when Dep. Mills and Dep. Battaglia received a call for service to respond to a single vehicle accident involving a pick-up truck that had left the roadway and crashed into the Violet Canal on east St. Bernard Highway.
