A six-vehicle pileup was reported to authorities the morning of Thursday, March 22. Two tractor-trailers are said to have been involved in the wreck which occurred on I-10 East near Duson. This incident caused significant traffic delays on both sides of the interstate. Authorities were able to have the scene cleared by the afternoon.
The cause of this crash is still under investigation. As of the latest report, no charges have been filed against any of the drivers involved. One person was injured. No details regarding this individual’s identity or injury severity have been released to the public.
Motor vehicle accidents that happen on the interstate and that involve 18-wheelers often have severe outcomes. While there are a lot of unknowns in this particular case, the known injured victim and any other individuals who suffered a serious injury in this event may be entitled to pursue relief for their losses. To do so, they would have to file personal injury claims — with the assistance of legal counsel — against those believed responsible for the wreck. Those who are able to successfully establish negligence in court may achieve monetary judgments in their favor for any and all damages that are deemed recoverable according to the laws of Louisiana.
