Slidell, Louisiana – A two-vehicle crash in Louisiana killed a 36-year-old Mississippi man after the ambulance he was driving collided with the rear of a Volvo truck.

Simultaneously, a 2020 Volvo Straight Box Truck was westbound on Interstate 10 immediately in front of the Ambulance. The Ambulance collided with the rear of the Volvo in the left lane for unknown reasons.

The incident caused minor injuries to two Ambulance passengers, who were transferred to a nearby hospital. Authorities indicated that t he crash is not thought to have been caused by impairment. Routine toxicological samples were acquired from both drivers for analysis as part of the continuing inquiry.

During that time, Southeast Louisiana was blanketed in dense fog. Troopers would like to caution all drivers that activities on or around our highways can pose a risk. Remember to keep the road conditions in mind as you go. Roadway darkness, rain, and fog can all impair visibility and cause accidents. Motorists should constantly make sound decisions when operating a car. Never drive while intoxicated, fatigued, or distracted. Follow all driving laws and make sure all passengers are securely restrained. Not all accidents are avoidable, but simple precautions like these can frequently mean the difference between life and death.
