Man Dies After Weekend Crash In Acadiana
Louisiana State Police Troop I spokesman Thomas Gossen says that a second person who was involved in a crash Sunday afternoon in Prairie Ronde has died.
The trooper says that 45-year-old Richard Mayeux of Westlake died yesterday from what turned out to be fatal injuries.
The crash happened when 57-year-old Stephanie Soileau of Ville Platte failed to negotiate a curve in the road and ended up hitting Mayeaux's truck.
Mayeaux was wearing a seat belt, but he did die yesterday. Soileau, who was also wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead at an area hospital Sunday afternoon.
This crash happened on Louisiana Highway 103 after Soileau crashed the centerline of the highway.
Soileau's death marked the first one recorded from the Louisiana State Police's jurisdiction for 2020.
