In a two-vehicle head-on accident that took place on Thursday morning, October 13, on US 190 West, two people were gravely injured—one died later.
According to a report from the Louisana State Police, one of the drivers, 68-year-old Harold Burgeron, made a questionable left turn onto Grey Eagle Road where he passed into the path of eastbound, 33-year-old Adam Andres. The two vehicles hit front-to-front.
Both operators were buckled, according to the investigation, but both suffered severe injuries and had to be taken to the hospital. Bergeron would die later that day. The investigation has not led anyone to believe that either of the two men were intoxicated at the time of the crash and toxicology samples were retrieved from the drivers.

A hit and run in Bayou St. John resulted in a cyclist sustaining multiple injuries after a driver in a white sedan struck her and then sped off.
Video taken by a neighbor shows the cyclist, identified as Michelle Phillips, riding away from the Mississippi River on Esplanade Avenue. As she traverses Crete Street, a white sedan reaches the intersection and collides with her. A stop sign is present on the Crete intersection.
New Orleans police responded to a call about the accident at 6:09 p.m. Philips was rushed to a hospital in an ambulance and treated for cracked vertebra and ribs. She was released Thursday.
In a separate incident that occurred two weeks prior, Rebekah Abernathy was struck by a driver while also riding a bicycle as she passed Magazine Street in front of the World War II Museum.
