A serious four-vehicle crash in Ascension Parish claimed the life of a 21-year-old woman, according to authorities. Louisiana State Police from Troop A are still investigating the crash, which occurred around 2:30 p.m. on the afternoon of Feb. 17. As with many car accidents of this type, speed is suspected to have been a factor, and police have confirmed that charges are pending against one of the drivers involved.
Drivers who choose to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs often create unfortunate scenarios. Those who encounter a drunk driver may be left with insufficient time to react and avoid a catastrophe, and they may be the ones who wind up suffering the consequences. A 30-year-old man has died in a recent head-on crash involving a suspected drunk driver in Louisiana.
A 30-year-old woman is in custody following an accident that claimed the life of a motorcyclist on the early morning of Feb. 2. Motorcycle accidents of this type are often fatal, and therefore are carefully reviewed by Louisiana law enforcement. So far, the woman faces multiple charges, including vehicular homicide, but no court date has been publicly announced at this time.
Although motorcycles are smaller than other vehicles and thus more difficult to spot, drivers still have a duty to watch out for oncoming bikes before making a left turn. Those who turn into the path of a rider can create an unfortunate scenario, as motorcycle accidents run a greater risk of proving deadly. A woman has been arrested and is now facing multiple charges following a recent crash that killed one person and left another with severe injuries in Louisiana.
