BATON ROUGE, La. (NBC Local 33) (FOX 44) – A deadly crash on LA Hwy 70 east of LA Hwy 3125 in St. James Parish claimed the life of a Donaldsonville man on July 5.

Daren Taylor, 57, died after his 2014 Buick Enclave crossed the centerline and struck a 2020 Kenworth Tractor Trailer for reasons still under investigation, according to Louisiana State Police.

The incident caused a third vehicle, a 2007 Hyundai Tiburon to swerve in an attempt to avoid colliding with the trailer. It then entered a ditch and struck a culvert.

Taylor was properly restrained but died of injuries sustained during the crash. All other parties received minor injuries.

Impairment is unknown. The crash remains under investigation.
