Determining the cause of a crash can take some time. Louisiana law enforcement agencies often require more than just the investigation conducted at the scene of a serious or fatal accident in order to determine what happened. Only after that investigation is substantially completed is a determination made regarding whether any charges should be filed against the driver believed to be at fault.
This is where troopers with the Louisiana State Police were at last report in connection with an accident that recently occurred on Louisiana Highway 13. What is known thus far is that a pickup truck headed southbound on the highway veered into the oncoming lane of travel for reasons that have yet to be determined. The pickup slammed into a northbound car.
