Car Hits Dump Truck Accident in St. Charles Parish

St. Charles Parish, LA (October 22,2018)- A dump truck accident left one dead in the Killona area of St. Charles Parish.  The car involved was a Nissan Altima. The accident happened around 7:15 pm. The police arrived shortly afterwards.

The driver of the Nissan, the only person in the vehicle, drove south on Louisiana 3127. The accident happened just as he was about to reach Highway 3141. The Altima struck the back of a dump truck. The dump truck was disabled on the side of the road. It partially blocked the left lane and median opening which caused the car to run off the road and into a ditch.

A 47-year-old male was the driver of the dump truck. He did not suffer injury. However, the driver of the Nisson, a 33-year-old male, died at the scene.

The truck driver did not seem impaired, voluntarily providing the police a blood sample. It remains unknown if the 33-year-old was impaired in any way. According to the police, he was wearing a seat belt.
