Negligent driver possible cause of fatal crash

A woman from Lacombe was tragically killed in a multi-vehicle accident during the evening of Feb. 18, according to local sources. Louisiana State Police Troop L responded to the accident, and has indicated that the cause of the crash was likely due to a negligent driver. Several other people were seriously hurt in the crash, which is still under investigation. As of this report, intoxication is not being considered a factor, and no charges have been filed.

Two people are dead and two more have been taken to the hospital in serious condition following a four-car pileup on Interstate 12 near New Orleans, according to local sources. Representatives of the Louisiana State Police confirmed the deaths of a woman and a man who have since been identified. The driver believed responsible is facing multiple charges, as is common in cases of fatal car accidents with a clear cause. 

Serious injuries can be hidden after car accidents

Many crash victims in Louisiana refuse medical treatment because they see or feel no physical harm. They may not realize that the typical emotional disorientation and mental trauma could hide or delay symptoms. Many serious injuries can develop over the weeks following a crash, one of which is headaches that might not be linked to the accident. It could be a sign of severe concussion or a blood clot on the brain.
