February 24, 2024

Mansfield, LA (September 07, 2021) – A fatal tractor-trailer accident took place on Monday, September 6th at about 6:00 p.m. that is being investigated by state police. The crash occurred in the northbound lanes of Interstate 49 at the Mansfield/Grand Bayou exit. 

The victims have been identified as 44-year-old Christopher Moore, a resident of Mooringsport and 54-year-old Daguang Zhang, a resident of Arlington, TX.

The investigation showed that Moore was driving a 2006 Peterbilt wrecker northbound on the interstate, towing a 2019 Freightliner tractor-trailer. For reasons that have yet to be determined, Moore exited the roadway and crashed into several trees. 

Following the impact, the tractor-trailer went up in flames. 

Both Moore and Zhang sustained fatal injuries during the crash.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the families of the deceased victims, Mr. Christopher Moore, and Mr. Daguang Zhang, at this time.

Wrongful Deaths in Mansfield 

Mansfield, LA - Christopher Moore and Daguang Zhang Killed in Truck Accident on I-49

Wrongful death is defined as a death that occurs due to the fault of another. Generally, this involves situations in which one person is killed because another person acted negligently, either accidentally or deliberately. Car accidents, medical malpractice, and even acts of criminal violence can all be legitimate sources of wrongful death suits.

Wrongful death claims can also be brought against manufacturers, businesses, corporations, and other entities accountable for fatalities caused by wrongful practices, negligence, or in cases for which they are directly liable.  

Wrongful death claims give survivors a sense of recourse when an act of negligence causes the death of someone they love. Louisiana law permits specific survivors to bring a wrongful death claim on behalf of the deceased.
