Louisiana Army National Guardsman dies in semi crash

An auto accident between a military Humvee and an 18-wheeler truck on I-49 this week resulted in the death of a Louisiana Army National Guardsman. Unfortunately, truck accidents involving 18-wheeler trucks occur all too frequently and often end in serious bodily injury or death because 18-wheeler trucks can pose great hazards. Drivers in Louisiana -- whether they operate smaller vehicles or large trucks -- must be aware of these hazards and remember to always exercise caution. There are many ways to avoid such accidents and the tragedies and expenses that arise from them.
