The Advocate incorrectly reported Saturday that David L. Hammer, 64, of League City, Texas, was driving a pickup east on Interstate 10 near Prairieville on Friday when an empty utility trailer detached from his vehicle, crossed the median and collided with an oncoming pickup driven by Michael B. Munson, 35, of Donaldsonville.

In fact, the trailer became unhitched from Munson’s westbound truck and struck Hammer’s eastbound truck, killing Hammer, State Police reported.

The Advocate regrets the error.
