Tragic car accident in Louisiana claims the lives of 2 drivers

A Louisiana accident recently claimed the life of two people. The crash actually involved a total of four vehicles. One person involved in the car accident suffered minor injuries that were not considered life-threatening and another remarkably left the scene with no injuries.

Apparently, a 54-year-old man was driving his Ford Edge in the left lane of US 190. He was traveling south. Three other vehicles, all of which were involved in the car crash, were traveling on the same highway, but were northbound.

For unknown reasons, the driver of the Ford Edge swerved to the right and struck a Jeep. His vehicle ended up entering the highway's northbound lanes. It was at this time that the vehicle struck the Avalon driven by a 63-year-old woman. The Ford Edge become slightly airborne before being struck by the Toyota Tundra driven by a 46-year-old man. While airborne, the Ford Edge hit the Tahoe, which had been driven by a 27-year-old man.

The drivers of the Ford Edge and the Toyota Avalon both lost their lives in this car accident. Authorities do not suspect that the driver of the Ford Edge was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. However, toxicological analysis will be performed on blood samples that were collected from both deceased individuals and could contribute to the investigation depending on the results of the tests.

When involved in a serious car accident like this one, it is important that victims understand that they have rights. For victims who survive tragic car accidents as well as families of victims who did not survive, it can be extremely difficult to move on with life. Although no amount of money will bring a deceased person back or go back in time and keep the accident from happening, a personal injury or wrongful death claim may be able to provide financial restitution that will allow victims and their families to move forward without financial burdens, which are often associated with serious and fatal accidents in Louisiana.
