Some of the most frustrating accidents are the ones we can’t explain. When only one car is involved, there’s nobody else there to tell the authorities what happened. This is exactly what happened on Monday night to a 60-year old man in Louisiana who died in a single-car accident.
John Poche, a 60-year old man from Hammond, Louisiana, was driving his sedan down Interstate-12, near LA Hwy, 1077, when he lost control of his car. The car veered off toward the left side of the road and careened off the highway. He ended up hitting a tree.
Poche suffered very serious injuries and was taken to the hospital. Unfortunately, he did not survive his injuries and was pronounced dead at the hospital. The driver did have his seatbelt on, but the impact was too severe and he still ended up suffering fatal injuries.
Nobody witnessed the accident so the authorities are not sure what happened. But, single car accidents happen all the time. Sadly, many people don’t survive these crashes. Part of the reason is that there’s nobody else around to call the police or emergency personnel. For John Poche, the results were disastrous.
Unfortunately, accidents like this happen all too often in Louisiana. No matter how careful people are, things go wrong. It can be very frustrating when someone’s in a single car accident like this. There’s no real way to know what happened or what caused the driver to lose control of the car.
