3 people killed in head on car crash

Any car accident can lead to serious injury or even death, and in the case of a head on collision this is more likely.

Many of our Texas readers spend time traveling through local states, including Louisiana, so this story should be of great interest.

A Duson man is facing a variety of criminal charges, including vehicular homicide, as a result of a two-car crash that killed three people, one of which was a pregnant teenager.

According to Louisiana State Police, the 58-year-old man was believed to be drunk at the time of the accident. He was booked on charges including vehicular homicide along with reckless driving and third-degree feticide.

Police noted that the man was driving north on Highway 343 when he decided to pass another vehicle, thus striking a car driven by a 31-year-old female head on.

Three of the people in the woman’s car were killed. This includes a 33-year-old man, a 14-year-old girl, and a 16-year-old girl. All three passengers were pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the truck, as well as his 23-year-old passenger, were both treated for minor injuries. The woman who was driving the other vehicle was taken to a local hospital for treatment of injuries that police described as moderate.

In the case of this accident, a driver who was under the influence of alcohol made a poor decision which killed three people and injured a fourth. Anybody who has been injured in a car accident, or is a loved one of somebody who has been killed, can consult with a personal injury attorney to help move forward with as much compassion and advocacy as possible.
