Louisiana head-on collision kills 3

Three men were killed in a head-on collision involving two pickup trucks. The accident took place on Nov. 10 around 6:30 p.m. According to police, a 19-year-old Houma man was speeding on La. 24. The vehicle was traveling in the northbound lane when it encountered an S-curve. The driver lost control in the curve and crossed the median, and his vehicle flipped.

Another pickup truck being driven by a 30-year-old Patterson man was traveling in the southbound lane when it collided head-on with the overturned car. Both trucks burst into flames, killing both drivers and a passenger in the southbound vehicle, a 54-year-old man. Everyone involved died at the scene.

The accident was still under investigation at the time of the report, and toxicology reports were pending. Due to the extent of the damage, it is unclear whether the occupants of the two trucks were wearing seat belts.

When someone dies in a car accident, the surviving family may be left to shoulder funeral and burial costs, medical expenses if the individual was hospitalized and lost income. If an individual was killed in a car accident due to another driver's negligence, the victim's family may be able to get compensation for their losses. Negligence may include driving under the influence, being distracted by a cell phone or other device or speeding.

A victim's family in a case such as this may benefit by contacting a personal injury attorney. Using available evidence such as accident reconstructions, toxicology reports and witness testimonies, an attorney may be able to build a case against the at-fault driver.
