Port Allen, LA -

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.

Impairment is not suspected to be a factor in this crash and a toxicology sample will be taken from all drivers for analysis.
