For reasons still under investigation, Haywood lost control of his vehicle, crossed the grassy median and entered into the westbound lanes of US 90. 

According to the report,  2008 GMC Sierra was rotating across the westbound lanes and was struck by a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado driven by 53-year-old Craig Guidry of Gray, LA.

Guidry was wearing a seat belt and was not injured, according to State police. 

The 2008 GMC Sierra was then struck by a 2016 Nissan Sentra driven by Petit, who was wearing a seat belt and pronounced dead on the scene. 

After the initial impacts with the Chevrolet and Nissan, the 2008 GMC Sierra continued rotating and was struck by three additional vehicles that were traveling west on US 90. 

Laura Appleberry, age 53, of Luling, was driving a 2015 Honda Civic, was wearing her seat belt and she was transported to University Medical Center with minor injuries, according to the report.
