Maurice Man Dies In Tractor Trailer Accident
67-year-old Russell L. Charles of Maurice has died after his tractor trailer ran off US 90.
Master Trooper Brooks David with La. State Police says Charles was heading east on US 90 near LA Highway 668 in Iberia Parish when he ran off the right side of the roadway, overcorrected, traveled across both lanes and into the median, which caused the tractor trailer to overturn.
David says Charles was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash. He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Iberia Parish Coroner’s Office. Routine toxicology samples have been taken (though impairment is not suspected) as officers continue to investigate.
