Posted on Feb 19 , 2013
Denham Springs police are continuing to investigate a fatal accident involving three vehicles that occurred on Interstate 12 eastbound near the Juban Road overpass just before 1 a.m. Monday morning. According to reports the wreck involved a 1984 Cadillac Deville, 2013 Ford Econoline van and 2005 International 18-wheeler pulling a box cargo trailer. The 18-wheeler caught fire, but the trailer was empty. The one driver, 37-year-old Melvin Beecham, of Baton Rouge, was pronounced dead at the scene. Four occupants of a van also involved in the crash reported minor. The accident closed I-12 eastbound at the Denham Springs Range Avenue exit for several hours. All lanes were reopened at approximately 8:15 a.m. The accident is still under investigation and no charges have been filed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Beecham family and friends. We are sorry for your loss.
