HAMMOND, LA (WVUE) -

Louisiana State Troopers responded to a two-vehicle fatal crash on Interstate 12 eastbound near US 190. The crash on Wednesday has claimed the life of one-month-old Bryce Martin from Hammond.

Troopers said the crash occurred as 62-year-old Hammond resident Erroll Nugent was driving a 2001 Ford Taurus eastbound on Interstate 12. After missing his exit to US 190 south, Nugent pulled into the center median of Interstate 12.  As Nugent attempted to re-enter Interstate 12, he pulled into the path of a 2006 Peterbilt tractor-trailer, which had been traveling eastbound in the left lane. 

The tractor-trailer was driven by Reymundo Nunez of Mission, TX.  The front of the tractor-trailer crashed into the rear of the Taurus.  Following the collision, both vehicles traveled into the center median. 

Nunez was properly restrained at the time of the crash. He was uninjured. Nunez provided Troopers with a voluntary breath sample, which showed no amount of alcohol present. He sustained moderate injuries in the crash and was transported to St. Tammany Parish Hospital.

Troopers suspected Nugent was impaired. A search warrant was obtained to collect a blood sample from Nugent. The sample will be sent to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis.

Nugent’s rear seat passenger, one-month-old Bryce Martin was not properly restrained at the time of the crash. He sustained severe injuries and was transported to Lakeview Hospital in critical condition. 

Martin was later flown to Children’s Hospital in New Orleans, where he died. Three other occupants in Nugent’s vehicle sustained moderate injuries. 

Once released from the hospital, Nugent will be booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail for vehicular homicide, three counts of vehicular negligent injuring, and several other charges related to the crash. 

The investigation is ongoing.
