A Vacherie man died Thursday after a head-on collision in East Baton Rouge Parish earlier in the day, according to a Louisiana State Police press release.
Senior Trooper Bryan Lee, a state police spokesman, said in the release that 24-year-old Tylen Oubre was driving north on La. 30 at Innovation Park around 3 a.m. when he crossed the center line and struck a cement truck. Oubre, who was wearing a seat belt, received serious injuries and was taken to a hospital where he later died, Lee said.
The driver of the cement truck, 56-year-old Cecil Burton, of Denham Springs, was not injured, Lee said. Investigators do not know what caused Oubre to cross the center line into oncoming traffic.
