La. State Trooper involved in pedestrian fatality on LA 1 in Lafourche

GOLDEN MEADOW, LA (WVUE) -

Louisiana State Troopers are investigating a fatality crash on LA 1 near LA 3235 in Lafourche Parish.

The crash happened around 10:30 p.m Friday and took the life of 33-year-old Raymond Taylor of Golden Meadow. 

Police say Taylor was walking in the southbound lane of LA 1 while a southbound vehicle, a fully marked Louisiana State Police Chevrolet Tahoe, was approaching. For unknown reasons Taylor entered the path of the patrol vehicle. The Trooper attempted to avoid Taylor by steering to the left, but was unsuccessful. Taylor was struck in the southbound lane of travel. He was transported to Lady of the Sea General Hospital in Cut Off where he died.

Impairment is suspected as a factor on the part of Taylor, and standard toxicology reports are pending. The Trooper driving the Tahoe was wearing a seat belt and was uninjured. The portion of the highway where the crash occurred was dark, and Taylor was wearing dark colored blue jeans with no shirt on.

Subsequent investigation revealed that the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office was contacted about Taylor walking in the roadway prior to the crash. Deputies were responding to the area when the crash occurred. The crash is being investigated by a State Police shift lieutenant and remains under investigation.
