The fiery crash involving five vehicles on I-10 leaves one person dead in West Baton Rouge Parish. 

Yesterday, around 5:30 p.m., State Troopers with Troop A began investigating a five vehicle crash on I-10 eastbound west of LA 415 in West Baton Rouge Parish.

The crash took the life of 26-year old Ronald Allen of Alexandria, LA. 

State Police initial investigation revealed that the crash occurred as eastbound traffic on I-10 began to slow down due to congestion.

A 2016 freightliner 18-wheeler, AR failed to reduce speed while approaching slower moving traffic. 

Allen's Impala was crushed between two 18-wheelers causing a fire that fully engulfed three vehicles.

Allen sustained fatal injuries as a result of the crash and was pronounced deceased at the scene by the West Baton Rouge Coroner's Office.

The other parties involved sustained minor to moderate injuries.
