Rayne, LA – Two DOT Subcontractors Struck by SUV on Hwy 90 Near Gina St

January 27, 2024

Rayne, LA (September 16, 2021) – Two workers employed as subcontractors by the Louisiana Highway Department of Transportation Department were badly injured in a crash that took place on Friday, September 10th, on Highway 90 near the Gina Street intersection.

Officers from the Rayne Police Department were dispatched to the scene after reports of an accident between an SUV and a truck pulling a loaded trailer.

According to sources, the subcontractors had finished a road project that consisted of removing rumble strips from the roadway and were awaiting another work crew also operating in the area.

The two workers were standing on the shoulder of Highway 90 near the truck and loaded trailer when, for reasons that have yet to be determined, a large SUV driven by Rusty James Hollier, a resident of Rayne, crashed into the truck and trailer and then struck both men.

Both workers were transported to local hospitals, one in stable condition and one with critical injuries.

No charges will be filed until officers receive the toxicology results from the driver of the SUV.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Pedestrian Accidents in Rayne

Rayne, LA - Two DOT Subcontractors Struck by SUV on Hwy 90 Near Gina St

Every day, pedestrians in Louisiana are hit by cars and trucks and endure serious injuries while they are simply taking a walk, crossing the street, going for a jog, and just waiting or walking by the side of the road. Pedestrians face a considerably heightened threat of being injured than the occupant of any vehicle. 

Almost 70% of pedestrian fatalities take place after the sun goes down. Even though drivers are supposed to be aware of their surroundings, this is rarely the case. This means pedestrians need to stay vigilant while walking near a roadway. 

Simple precautions like being aware of your surroundings, wearing reflective clothing, not walking too close to the street, and going against the flow of traffic can help you avoid being hit by a distracted or speeding motorist.
