Motor Vehicle Accident Kills 5 in Louisiana
Five people, including three children, were killed in a head-on collision on March 6 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. According to police and witnesses, the five victims were inside a vehicle that caught fire after it was struck by a pickup truck on I-10 East. The driver of the pickup truck survived the accident, while his passenger remains in the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
A total of four vehicles were involved in the auto accident that began when a 2005 GMC pickup and a 2001 Mercedes SUV traveling west collided. It is believed they were involved in some kind of road rage incident with the pickup following the SUV closely at a high rate of speed. The pickup clipped the SUV and crossed the median where it spun and sideswiped the trailer of a semi. The pickup then plowed into a 1997 Acura that immediately caught fire on impact. The pickup split in two on the shoulder of the highway.
Police have said there was a bottle of liquor found in the pickup and that toxicology tests are pending.
