The Louisiana State Police responded to a three vehicle fatal crash on LA Hwy 70 near LA Hwy 3125 in Ascension Parish Friday morning in which one individual died.

Taylor Scrantz, a spokesperson for LSP, said that a passenger car was eastbound on LA Hwy 70 and crossed the centerline.

Upon doing so the car struck a tractor trailer that was westbound on LA Hwy 70. A westbound  car was traveling behind the tractor trailer and swerved to the right to avoid rear ending the tractor trailer and struck a concrete culvert.   

According to Scrantz, the deceased is the individual who initially crossed the centerline.
