Avoyelles Parish, LA – Arlene Juneau Dies In Car Accident on Hwy 1

April 15, 2024

Avoyelles Parish, LA (June 19, 2021) – One man was arrested after a fatal three-car collision on Friday, June 18th on Louisiana Highway 1 just outside of Hamburg.

Reports show that 42-year-old Kenneth Normand, a resident of Hessmer, was charged with vehicular homicide.

The accident happened at about 1:30 p.m. when Normand was traveling southbound on Louisiana Highway 1 when he swerved into oncoming traffic and crashed into a vehicle being driven by 63-year-old Arlene Juneau, a resident of Baton Rouge. 

Debris from the collision struck another passing car.

Juneau was killed during the crash. Normand sustained moderate injuries and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital. 

The driver of the third vehicle was unharmed during the incident.

The crash still remains under investigation as police feel some type of impairment was most likely involved.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Arlene Juneau, at this time.
