Two Men Die in Big Truck Wreck on I-10
Posted on Nov 8 , 2012
The consequences of getting into an accident with big trucks are often fatal. This morning I read a news story about just that. According to Baton Rouge police, a man driving the wrong way in an eastbound lane of the Interstate 10 bridge caused a four-vehicle accident that killed two people. Alex Dillman, 29, was driving a Jeep Cherokee which struck an 18 Wheeler head-on. He then continued into the center lane and hit a Dodge pickup, driven by Dargus Rochon, 33 years-old. Tragically, Dillman died at the scene and Dargus later died at a hospital. The driver of the big truck was taken to a hospital with serious injuries and the driver of a Lincoln Navigator involved in the accident was not hurt. Investigators are trying to determine why Dillman was driving the wrong way on the interstate when the crash occurred. The big truck wreck caused the eastbound lanes over the bridge to close for more than six hours. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families that lost loved ones in this tragic accident.
