Texas Driver Killed in Nighttime Crash in Louisiana After Stopping Vehicle in Travel Lane on I-10
Iberville Parish, Louisiana – A Texas driver was killed in a nighttime crash in Louisiana after they stopped their vehicle in a travel lane on I-10.
Louisiana State Police (LSP) stated on May 12, 2023, that on May 11, just after 11:30 p.m., Troopers with Troop A began investigating a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 10 westbound, near milepost 129 in Iberville Parish. Khamphout Senesanouk, 48, of Texas, died as a result of the crash.
According to LSP, the preliminary inquiry found that Senesanouk was driving a Toyota Camry east on Interstate 10. The Camry came to a stop in the right lane of traffic for unknown reasons. Following that, an 18-wheeler tractor-trailer collided with the back end of the Camry.
Although seatbelt use is unknown at this time, Senesanouk died at the scene from his injuries. The 18-wheeler driver was properly restrained and unharmed. A toxicological sample was acquired from both drivers as part of the continuing inquiry and will be analyzed. This crash is still being investigated.
According to the Louisiana State Police, while not all incidents are avoidable, statistics show that correctly worn restraints can greatly minimize your risk of being injured or killed in a vehicle crash. Louisiana law requires that everyone in a vehicle, regardless of seating position, wear their seat belts at all times. Wearing your seat belt correctly is one of the most efficient strategies to save your life and limit injuries in a car accident.
