The nation’s roadways are an important aspect of the country’s economy. They allow goods to be transported from place to place while also allowing employees, customers and clients to travel to a business location. While Louisiana laws attempt to ensure everyone’s safety while utilizing the roadways, becoming involved in a tragic car accident is a possibility. Unfortunately, one family is now coping with the news that another person’s alleged action caused their loved one’s death.
The accident occurred in mid-July. Police claim that a 79-year-old woman traveling east in a sedan tried to pass another vehicle, also traveling east. Unfortunately, the woman was allegedly unable to return to her lane before striking head-on a sedan traveling west, driven by a 63-year-old woman.
