3 suffer moderate injuries, 1 dies in Louisiana car accident

Maintaining control of a vehicle is the primary objective of every Louisiana driver on the road. When a person is unable to perform this function adequately, a car accident can result. Depending on the severity of the crash, lives can be lost and injuries suffered.

Jury finds Louisiana DOTD partially responsible in fatal accident

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) is responsible for designing and constructing roadways and their intersections in a way that promotes public safety. Even so, many of the state's drivers will agree that some intersections are not laid out well and lead to accidents. A jury agreed with this general assessment, at least with regard to one specific locale, when it found DOTD to be at least partially responsible for a fatal accident that took place in April 2011.

Driver in fatal car accident a mystery to Louisiana State Police

In some crashes, it is difficult to determine who was driving.  This is usually the case when all of the occupants of the vehicle died in the car accident, and the placement of the bodies does not allow for an easy identification of the driver.  This was most likely the case in a recent wreck that the Louisiana State Police are investigating.

Cause of fatal accident in Louisiana suspected to be impairment

Despite the amount of information available regarding the dangers of drinking and driving, some Louisiana drivers continue to do so. When people get behind the wheel of a car after consuming alcohol, they put not only their own life in danger, but also the lives of everyone around them.  In fact, police suspect that a drunk driver may have caused a recent fatal accident.

Impairment suspected in Louisiana car accident

A recent tragedy gave the Louisiana State Police the opportunity to remind drivers of the dangers of driving under the influence even though it is not yet clear whether the presumably at-fault driver was impaired.  The results of a toxicology sample are pending.  The same driver died from injuries suffered in the car accident.

Police need help in hit-and-run car accident in Louisiana

Law enforcement officials sometimes need the assistance of the public to locate vehicles and their drivers that are involved in hit-and-run collisions. Recently, police began asking anyone with information about a car accident that put a Louisiana man in the hospital to come forward. Now, a week after the driver fled the scene of that crash, the man's family has made the painful decision to take the victim off the machines believed to be keeping him alive.

Louisiana State Police locate driver after recent car accident

One of the most important tasks of the Louisiana State Police at an accident scene is to determine precisely what happened. Sometimes, that task is easy. Other times, it requires more investigation. For instance, it can take valuable time and resources to locate a driver suspected to be responsible for a hit-and-run car accident.

Louisiana man dies in suspected drunk driving car accident

Running out of gas on the highway can be irritating and, sometimes, downright scary. For instance, a Louisiana man ran out of gas at 1:30 a.m. on Interstate 10 recently. The vehicle stalled in a lane of travel, so he had to get out of the vehicle in order to move it. It was then that he was hit and killed in what police suspect was a car accident caused by a drunk driver.

Cause of death determined in fatal accident on Louisiana Hwy 92
