On December 22, 2022, shortly after 2:00 p.m., Louisiana State Police Troopers responded to a two-vehicle crash on LA 928 east of LA 74 in Ascension Parish.
The crash ultimately claimed the life of 62-year-old Michael Head of Geismar.
The initial investigation revealed that Head was driving a 2014 Cadillac SRX headed west on LA 928. At the same time, a 2013 Toyota 4-Runner was headed east on LA 928. For reasons still being investigated, Head crossed the center line, entered the eastbound lane, and hit the 4-Runner head-on.
Head, who was not restrained at the time of the crash, died at the scene.
The driver of the 4-Runner was properly restrained and transported to a local hospital to be treated for moderate injuries.
As part of the ongoing investigation, a toxicology sample was obtained from both drivers and will be submitted for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.
