The initial investigation by State Police revealed that the crash occurred as a vehicle was traveling south on LA Hwy 675.  At the same time, Broussard was heading west on the west frontage road of US 90.  For reasons unknown, Broussard failed to yield at the intersection and he was struck by the other vehicle.

He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Iberia Parish Coroner.
