Pickup driver dies in collision with 18-wheeler
FOURCHON, La. (AP) — State police say a 48-year-old man from Cut Off has been killed in a Lafourche Parish traffic accident.
It happened Monday afternoon on Louisiana Highway 3090 south of Fourchon. A pickup truck driven by Patrick Terrebonne crossed the center line and into the path of a tractor-trailer rig.
The driver of the big rig tried to avoid the crash by steering onto the shoulder but the pickup continued traveling across the road and the vehicles collided head-on.
Terrebonne was pronounced dead at the scene.
