Acadiana police blotter for July 11, 2014

A fiery head-on collision Wednesday night between two 18-wheelers on Interstate 10 killed both drivers and closed eastbound traffic near the Estherwood/Iota exit for several hours.

The crash occurred shortly before 6 p.m. when a westbound tractor-trailer truck crossed the median, colliding with an eastbound truck, Trooper Brooks David said.

“After impact, both vehicles caught fire, with one coming to rest across the eastbound lanes of I-10 and the other off the right side of the roadway,” David said in a news release.

The fire interfered with efforts to gather vehicle information and identify the drivers, he said.

Man on railroad tracks struck by train, killed

A Union Pacific train struck and killed a man who was on the railroad tracks Thursday near Lebeau in St. Landry Parish.

The victim’s name and age were withheld Thursday pending family notification, said Capt. Megan Vizena, a spokesman for the Sheriff’s Department.

The train’s conductor told investigators he blew the horn when he saw the man on the tracks, but the train’s locomotive struck and killed him.

Vizena said investigators believe the circumstances indicate the victim might have been deaf.

The investigation continues, she said.
