A 27-year-old man was charged with reckless operation after allegedly killing another driver in a car accident in Gonzales on Feb. 21. The crash occurred just past Louisiana 30 on Interstate 10 at about 5:15 a.m.
The 27-year-old was driving a 2003 Acura RSX when he struck a 2004 Isuzu Rodeo headed west on the interstate, and the collision sent the SUV into the air. The Isuzu landed next to the interstate in a grassy area located on Boudreaux Road. The 66-year-old driver of the SUV, who was from Baton Rouge, died even though he was wearing his seat belt when the crash occurred.
