A Eunice man is dead and a Church Point man is facing vehicular homicide charges following a head-on collision in Acadia Parish. The accident took place around 7:30 Sunday night on LA 95 north of I-10. State police say 28-year-old Gerardo Robles hit an SUV from behind while trying to pass it. Investigators say the impact sent Robles' vehicle into the opposite lane, hitting a car driven by 63-year-old George Fisher of Eunice. Fisher was pronounced dead at the scene. Robles, his passenger, Fisher's two passengers, and the three occupants of the SUV were all transported to a local hospital for their injuries.
Robles is also charged with vehicular negligent injury. While troopers say they suspect Robles was impaired, toxicology test results are still pending. The case remains under investigation.
