The body of a man whose pickup truck crashed into Lake Pontchartrain Monday afternoon has been recovered.
The victim was identified as 19-year-old Miguel Rodriguez of Metairie.
The accident happened Monday around 4:30 p.m. about 2 miles from the south shore. It's unclear why the Ford F-250 crashed into a guardrail in the southbound lanes of the Causeway.
Shorly after the crash, a witness spotted Rodriguez in the water. The witness told police that Rodriguez said he was okay but he then disappeared below the surface of the lake.
