BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - State police say a 60-year-old Port Allen man died after his SUV slammed into a tractor-trailer trying to turn into a private driveway off U.S. 190 near the Huey P. Long Bridge in Baton Rouge.
Trooper Jared Sandifer says 51-year-old Alvester Moore Jr., of Smackover, Ark., was traveling east on U.S. 190 in an 18-wheeler Wednesday night when he attempted to turn left into a private driveway.
While Moore was turning, Sandifer says an SUV driven by Wilson Battley Jr. hit the trailer that stretched across both lanes.
Sandifer says Battley was wearing a seat belt.
The accident is still under investigation.
