Unrestrained 10-, 15-year-old killed in car accident

Two minors are dead after a 2:00 a.m., car accident early Monday morning in St. John the Baptist Parish, Louisiana. The minors, a 10-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy were in a car driven by a 37-year-old man who was traveling on Hwy 44 near Hwy 54. Authorities are not sure why the driver lost control of the vehicle, but it left the roadway and hit a tree.

Both the driver and another passenger of unknown age in the front seat were wearing their safety belts. Neither was seriously injured; however, the two minors in the back seat of the car were not wearing their safety belts and were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

Police said speed was allegedly a factor in the car accident. Samples of blood were taken from the driver to see if he was impaired; however, authorities have not definitively said what the cause of the accident was or if drugs or alcohol was involved. The accident is still being investigated by the Louisiana State Police. There is no word on whether the driver will be formerly charged in connection with the fatal accident.

When a loved one is seriously injured or killed due to another's negligence or recklessness, you should contact an experienced, skilled Louisiana personal injury attorney. This will ensure your rights are protected and that you understand your options for recovering financial damages from those responsible for your loss. You may have a claim for wrongful death, pain and suffering, loss of consort, lost wages or other damages. There are time limits for filing such cases, so it is in your best interest to consult with a Louisiana personal injury attorney as soon as possible to make sure there is enough time to adequately investigate your case.
