The vast majority of deaths and injuries on Louisiana roads involve passenger cars, light trucks and vans, according to statistics from Data Reports. In 2013, these vehicle types were involved in 92 percent of serious crashes.
Motorcycle, bus and big truck accidents make up the remainder of these serious Louisiana crash figures. The reality is that the impact of a big truck accident is often significant, particularly when other smaller vehicles or pedestrians are involved.

Bus Carrying Football Fans Crashes, Injures Driver
The Town Talk reports that a bus carrying football fans from Many High School crashed on Louisiana Highway 6. The crash involved a pickup truck and a bus chartered by the school.
There were no serious injuries sustained in the crash, but the driver of the truck went to a nearby hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. There were 56 passengers on the bus at the time of the accident, and they waited safely on the roadside until an additional bus came to fetch them.
Local law enforcement and Louisiana State Police are investigating the crash. No details about toxicology reports or the reason behind the accident are available. Reports have not indicated whether either of the drivers will face charges.
Pedestrian Dies in Serious Truck Accident
KSLA reports that a woman died when a pickup truck hit her. Police say the crash happened on Saturday morning, and when they arrived on the scene, they saw she had severe injuries. The vehicle involved was a 2007 Chevrolet pickup truck.
The driver of the truck drove off the roadway and crashed into the victim. Emergency workers transported the victim to a local hospital, but she later died from her injuries.
Police took full toxicology reports from the driver of the truck, and the results are pending. A full investigation into the cause of the accident is underway, and there is no obvious reason why the driver of the truck left the road.
The victim was the sister of a staffer in the local mayor’s office. She was canvassing for the mayor’s campaign when the accident happened.
