Louisiana State Police is investigating a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 10 east of LA 3246 (Siegen Lane) in East Baton Rouge Parish that killed a 39-year-old Baton Rouge man.
Officials say the investigation revealed Javier Alexander Alvarado-Espinosa was driving a Honda Civic headed east in the left lane on Interstate 10 and for reasons unknown at this time, Alvarado-Espinosa’s vehicle veered to the left, hit the wall, and rolled over several times. Thereafter, the Civic was overturned on the inside shoulder.
Despite being properly restrained, Alvarado-Espinosa died at the scene. Both passenger–side occupants were properly restrained and sustained minor injuries.
The driver-side rear passenger was unrestrained and suffered moderate injuries. All passengers were transported to an area hospital for treatment. A toxicology sample was obtained from the driver and will be submitted for scientific analysis.
The crash remains under investigation.
