March 3, 2024

Grant Parish, LA (July 08, 2021) – One man was charged with vehicular homicide following the death of another during a two-car accident on U.S. 167 in the area of State Highway 1241 on Wednesday, July 7th.

The accident took place at about 5:50 a.m. when 22-year-old Winnfield resident Mario Armbrister was driving northbound on U.S. 167 when he failed to slow as he approached a vehicle towing a boat trailer driven by 63-year-old Ricky Randall, a resident of Dry Prong. Armbrister rear-ended Randall’s boat trailer forcing Randall’s vehicle off the roadway where it crashed through several wires.

Armbrister sustained minor injuries and declined medical treatment. 

Randall’s injuries were fatal and he died at the scene.  

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

Rear-End Accidents in Grant Parish

7.08 Grant Parish, LA - Ricky Randall Killed in Rear-End Crash on US-167

When one vehicle tailgates another, any slowing or braking done by the leading car can easily cause the second to crash into its rear-end. The force of the resulting impact could be enough to thrust the first car into the rear-end of the vehicle in front of it, causing serious damage to multiple victims and multiple vehicles.

Simultaneous rear-end collisions, also called chain-reaction accidents, are a style of accident that is common in Louisiana. They are most often caused by tailgating, or one vehicle following too closely to another. Driving laws in Louisiana require drivers to keep a reasonable distance between themselves and other vehicles at all times. 

When an accident that stems from another person’s negligence causes someone harm, it is imperative that they reach out to a dependable Louisiana car accident attorney as soon as they are able.
