Three From Louisiana Killed in Early Morning Single-Vehicle Crash on LA 16

Louisiana – Louisiana State Police reported that on Sunday, July 10th, 2022, shortly after 5:00 a.m., Troopers from LSP Troop L responded to a single-vehicle fatal crash on LA 16 at the intersection of LA 25 in Washington Parish. The crash killed Juan Munoz, 29, of Covington, Louisiana, Ramon Munoz, 32, of Covington, Louisiana, and Martin Vega, 22, of Folsom, Louisiana. The initial investigation led Troopers to believe that the crash occurred while Juan Munoz was driving a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado east on LA 16. As the vehicle approached the intersection with LA 25, the driver failed to stop and continued straight ahead, colliding head-on with a large tree.

Despite being properly restrained, Juan Munoz and his front seat passenger, Ramon Munoz, were killed in the crash. Martin Vega, a rear seat passenger, was unrestrained and also died in the crash. All three occupants were pronounced dead at the scene. Blood samples were collected as part of the ongoing investigation and will be submitted for toxicological testing.

Speed, impairment, distractions, and a lack of a seatbelt continue to be contributing factors in crashes investigated by the Louisiana State Police. These avoidable collisions frequently have life-changing consequences for all parties involved. Please educate your loved ones on the importance of making safe decisions while driving.
