A Louisiana highway was recently covered in toilet paper. Unfortunately, the culprit behind the toilet paper littering was not pranking young adults but a fatal semitruck wreck. The wreck caused the death of one man and injuries to several other victims.
According to authorities, the crash occurred between five vehicles early in the morning, though the specific details are as yet unclear. The crash occurred on the westbound side of Interstate 10, close to the Breaux Bridge exit. Four semitrucks and one motor vehicle were involved in the accident; one of the trucks was transporting the toilet paper that scattered on the interstate. Reportedly, one of the trucks also caught fire as a result.
Sadly, one of the semitruck drivers was killed. Four others were hurt, though their injuries were reported as minor. Authorities did not report which vehicles the injured victims were in at the time of the crash. Crews spent hours cleaning up wreckage and debris from the interstate.
Although authorities do not have all the details to report one driver's negligence in the semitruck wreck, they will surely work diligently to officially document exactly what occurred. Victims and family members of deceased victims often find a personal injury attorney to be of assistance following a complicated wreck. Accidents involving more than one vehicle may be difficult to process without skilled experience. Louisiana attorneys can assist clients with insurance claims, personal injury claims and/or wrongful death lawsuits. Attorneys can review legal options with clients and discuss the best option for legal recourse based on the specific circumstances presented.
