A Franklinton, Louisiana man driving a 2001 Ford Expedition attempted to pass four vehicles in a no-passing zone on Louisiana Highway 10 around Bogalusa, Louisiana, on Friday, April 16, 2010, resulting in a head-on collision car wreck with a 2001 Ford truck that caught on fire after impact. The drivers of both vehicles were killed. One passenger in the Ford Expedition received moderate injuries and a restrained child received serious injuries.
According to Baton Rouge, Louisiana car wreck lawyer, Scott Andrews, the driver of the 2001 Ford expedition is presumed to be at fault in causing the head-on collision because he was passing in a no-passing zone in violation of the Louisiana Highway Regulatory Act and because the car wreck occurred in the opposing lane of travel.
