Police in Louisiana are trying to determine the cause of a crash that left two people injured and the driver responsible dead. This incident occurred in White Castle at the end of May. As is common practice with motor vehicle accidents, authorities are trying to determine if impairment contributed to this incident.
According to a recent news report, the evening of Tuesday, May 30, a 32-year-old male was operating his pickup on LA 405 when he rear-ended a Ford truck. The force of impact sent the truck into oncoming traffic where it struck another vehicle head-on. The driver of the pickup died at the scene. The drivers of the two other vehicles suffered moderate injuries and were transported to the hospital for treatment. Their current conditions are unknown.
The driver believed responsible for this crash was not a resident of the state. He is said to have been visiting from Texas. Authorities are not sure what caused this individual to collide with the truck. At this time, police do not actually believe impairment contributed to this wreck, but toxicology results are still pending.
When the drivers responsible for motor vehicle accidents fail to survive, the victims may not feel they have many options for seeking compensation for their losses. This is far from the truth, however. In this particular case, both of the injured victims may pursue compensation by filing personal injury claims against the estate of the deceased in a Louisiana civil court. Through settlement negotiation or litigation, maximum relief may be achieved.
