The mayor of a small town in Louisiana was killed in a car wreck on April 3. The fatal car accident occurred while the 65-year-old mayor of Loureauville was traveling westbound on La. 86. At the time, he was a passenger in a Ford Mustang that was being driven by a 62-year-old woman.
According to a spokesman for the Louisiana State Police, the fatal collision happened at about 6:40 p.m. when a young passenger in a Dodge Ram bumped the truck's steering wheel. While the eastbound Dodge was traveling around a curve near Lake Teche Road, it entered the opposite lane of traffic and collided with the mayor's vehicle.
