Louisiana – Louisiana State Police reported on June 19, 2022, that on May 31, 2022, shortly before 6:00 p.m., LSP Troop C was notified of a two-vehicle injury crash on Louisiana Highway 24 (West Park Avenue) near Square Wolf Lane. Trey Albert, 25, of Houma, Louisiana, died as a result of the accident.

The Kenworth driver began to slow down in preparation for a right turn onto Square Wolf Lane.
