Louisiana State Police investigated a multiple vehicle crash on Interstate 10 Wednesday afternoon that resulted in the death of a Florida man, according to a news release.
The crash, involving three vehicles, occurred on I-10 westbound, west of La. 415 shortly after 5:30 pm.
Troopers’ preliminary investigation revealed that Clinton Mabry, 39 of Gulf Breeze, Fla., was driving a 1989 Pontiac Grand Am eastbound on I-10 in the westbound inside lane when he hit a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu nearly head on, according to the release.
After the collision, the Pontiac crossed into the westbound outside lane and struck a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe. Mabry was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.
Mabry’s passenger and the drivers of the other two vehicles were transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Troopers suspect alcohol to have been a factor in the crash on the part of Mabry, but were unable to obtain a sample of his blood due to his injuries.
Troopers do not suspect either of the other two drivers to have been impaired.
