A New Iberia man was shot to death early Saturday morning, just hours after he finished celebrating his birthday, KATC-TV reports.

The victim was discovered dead inside his vehicle with a gunshot wound to the head in the 300 block of Field Street, Iberia Parish sheriff’s deputies said.

Although deputies haven’t yet identified the victim, friends and family told the television station that he is Terry Delahoussey.

“I mean it’s a hurting feeling,” Willie Jones, a friend of Delahoussey’s, told KATC. “He was like an uncle to me, and it’s going to hurt, but he was a good person.”

Detectives are asking anyone with information to contact the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s office at (337) 369-3711

Crash on Interstate 10 results in minor injuries

A pickup truck and six 18-wheelers crashed on the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge Sunday evening, closing all westbound lanes for more than two hours but causing only minor injuries, State Police said.

The wreck, which occurred near milepost 122 just east of Butte La Rose in St. Martin Parish, left four people with minor injuries but did not cause any life-threatening injuries, said Master Trooper Brooks David.

The pileup began when the pickup truck crashed on the interstate, blocking both westbound lanes of traffic, David said. Six 18-wheelers were behind the pickup truck and became involved in the crash, David said.

David said he was notified of the crash around 5:30 p.m. and that troopers were able to reopen all lanes of the interstate by about 7:40 p.m.

State Police diverted westbound traffic onto U.S. 190 before reopening the interstate.
