An unidentified Hispanic male was killed during the crash.
An investigation conducted by State Police says that a 1991 Mercedes-Benz was heading westbound on Interstate 10 when it was hit from behind by a Honda Pilot SUV.
The collision caused both vehicles to become disabled. As the driver of the Mercedes exited his vehicle a Jeep Liberty SUV collided with the vehicle, fatally injuring the driver. The St. Martin Parish Coroner’s Office pronounced him dead at the scene.
The two other drivers were taken to a local hospital with non-critical and moderate injuries. Two of the passengers from the Jeep Liberty were transported in unknown condition to a local hospital for medical treatment.
