HOUMA -- Three people have been killed in a traffic accident in Terrebonne Parish.
Louisiana State Police say a 1995 Honda Civic was westbound on Louisiana 182 near Lucky’s Casino shortly after 2:30 a.m. Wednesday when it crossed the centerline and hit an eastbound 2016 Ford F-150. After hitting the pickup, the car continued westbound in the eastbound lane and hit an 18-wheeler.
State police say the car’s three occupants — 29-year-old Christopher Rately, of Abita Springs, 22-year-old Stephen Buck of Folsom and 31-year-old Rafael Fandino of Metairie — were unrestrained and ejected from the vehicle. Each was pronounced dead at the scene.
Seatbelts were worn by the pickup truck’s driver, 41-year-old Jessie Albritton, of Houma, and the 18-wheeler’s driver, Maurice James, of West Memphis, Arkansas. They sustained minor injuries.
