Man Dies After 3 Vehicle Wreck Near Folsom
FOLSOM, La. (AP) — A Jefferson man has died from injuries he received in a three-vehicle on La. Highway 25 near Folsom.
State police say a driver from Mount Hermon was booked with vehicular homicide, DWI and improper lane usage.
Trooper Greg Marchand identified the victim as 66-year-old Gary White. He died at a New Orleans hospital. The other drivers were not injured.
Marchand says White was southbound on Highway 25 Tuesday afternoon when a northbound pickup driven by 76-yearold James Albury crossed the center line.
Marchand says White swerved in an attempt to avoid the crash but the two trucks collided head-on. A third pickup ran off the road to avoid the accident.
Albury was booked at the St. Tammany Parish jail in Covington.
It was unclear whether he has an attorney.
