WATCH: Local sheriff’s office responds after close call caught on camera


GONZALES, La. (BRPROUD) – Earlier this month, a local man named Grady Gwyn was travelling down Hwy 44 with his autistic son.

Gwyn’s Garmin Dash Cam caught what happened in the early afternoon hours of September 15.

As Gwyn was making his way towards Ralph’s Market on Hwy 44, the video captures what looks like a truck swerving into the lane that Gwyn’s vehicle was travelling in.

Gwyn claims that the truck never slowed down and his vehicle almost ended up in a ditch.

Gwyn says that he did not contact the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office because he was unable to get a license plate number for the oncoming vehicle.

When asked about this incident, the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office said this about driving safely on our roadways:

The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office encourages motorist to always follow traffic laws to keep themselves and others on the roadways safe.
