Fatal Accident on I-12 Caused by Driver who Lost Control of his Vehicle

On Behalf of | Jul 21, 2015 | Automotive

One victim is dead and another hospitalized with serious injuries after being hit by a vehicle while on the shoulder of I-12 on Monday afternoon.

According to the Louisiana State Police, a 57-year-old Independence woman was trying to help load a car onto a trailer near LA 447 in Walker, La., around 4 p.m. when she was struck by an out of control vehicle. A 56-year-old man from Baton Rouge who was also stopped on the roadway was badly hurt in the wreck.

The Baton Rouge car accident lawyers at Simien & Simien can help you if you have been injured or lost a loved one in a car crash. For a free review of your claim, call (800) 374-8422.

A preliminary investigation has revealed that a 26-year-old man driving a 2007 Ford Crown Victoria lost control of his vehicle. The vehicle proceeded to spin, went off the road, hit both victims, and plowed into the trailer.

One of the victims was taken to Our Lady of the Lake Hospital with serious injuries while the driver who caused the crash was booked into Livingston Parish Detention Center. He was charged with negligent homicide and reckless operation. Although authorities do not believe that impairment is a factor in the crash, speed may have caused the deadly wreck.

The crash occurred just one day after the new speed limits on I-10 and I-12 were announced. On I-12, between Sherwood Forest Boulevard and Range Avenue, drivers will now be able to drive 70 miles per hour. Previously, the speed limit was 60 miles per hour.

Although some drivers rejoiced in the increased speed limits, accident statistics reveal that the number of speed-related fatal accidents has increased since 2012. The most recent tragedy on I-12 could reveal that drivers are already driving recklessly within these new speed limits.

At Simien & Simien, we believe that careless vehicle operators need to be held accountable for their actions. With a track record of success, our Baton Rouge personal injury attorneys are ready to thoroughly investigate your claim and determine your legal options.
