Posted on Nov 12 , 2012
We often read about serious accidents involving big trucks and 18-wheeler truck accident throughout Louisiana. Today, I came across a tragic news story about a fatal accident involving a log truck. A Columbia man died late last week in a rear-end collision involving a log truck in Caldwell Parish. According to Grayson Police, thirty-year-old Jeremy Dulaney was driving a Toyota pick-up truck on U.S. 165 when his vehicle rear-ended a loaded log truck. Reports said logs entered the passenger side of Dulaney's vehicle. Sadly, Dulaney was pronounced dead at the scene by the Caldwell Parish Coroner's Office. The driver of the truck carrying the logs was not injured. Witnesses at the scene indicated the log truck had been properly functioning and had warning devices properly displayed on the rear of the logs. State police are investigating the accident but it is unknown at this time what caused Dulaney to hit the log truck. Reports indicate that impairment is not suspected, however, routine toxicology test results are pending. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Jeremy Dulaney.
