Fans of the hit reality show 'Swamp People' are in shock this morning after finding out that one of the stars of the hit show David LaDart has lost his 19 year old son in a car crash early Sunday morning.

Reports are doming in that LaDart's son Jacob was driving a 2001 Chevrolet pickup in Union Parish when the accident occurred Sunday morning. Reports indicate that the truck left the road and that Jacob LaDart tried to recover from leaving the roadway but maybe over corrected.  After doing so, the truck traveled across both lanes and into a wooded area, striking several trees. Jacob LaDart was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene.
