Collision left 1 Louisiana man dead, 2 others injured

An investigation was underway after a fatal accident involving three vehicles occurred just before 10 p.m. on Jan. 3 in Terrebonne Parish. Louisiana State Police Troop C arrived at the accident on LA 311. A 34-year-old man from Thibodaux died at the scene, and his vehicle was destroyed. Troopers are unclear whether the man had been wearing a seat belt.

The deceased had been driving southbound in a 2002 Honda Accord when he reportedly crossed into the northbound lanes, colliding with a 2015 Honda Accord driven by a 53-year-old man from Metairie. A 1994 Chevrolet pickup driven by a 49-year-old man from Belle Rose was hit with debris from the wreck. The drivers of the second and third vehicles involved in the wreck suffered injuries and were taken to Terrebonne General Medical Center for treatment. Both men were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident.

The preliminary investigation did not reveal a cause for the 2002 Honda to go out of control. Routine toxicology tests were carried out on the deceased, and the other drivers underwent standard blood tests. The results of the lab work were pending, and the accident remained under investigation.

Depending on the severity, the recovery period for car accident injuries could take time. Those who endure pain and suffering may find it helpful to consult with a personal injury attorney. There could be medical expenses and a loss of wages due to injuries, and the initiation of a personal injury lawsuit may assist with these sudden damages.
