Lincoln Parish Fatal Crash
A Mississippi man has died after being struck by a vehicle on Interstate 20 in Lincoln Parish.
Louisiana State Police Troop F Troopers responded to the crash last night at about 11:50 pm. The investigation revealed that a 2003 Nissan Altima was traveling west on I-20, near milepost 94.5, when it rear-ended a 2010 Toyota Yaris. The Toyota continued off the south side of the road before coming to rest. The Altima stopped on the westbound shoulder of I-20.
For unknown reasons, the driver of the Altima, identified as 27-year-old Jacques Luckett from Cary, MS, exited his vehicle and lied down in the roadway. Shortly afterwards, a 2010 Chevrolet Impala, that was not associated with the original crash, was traveling west on I-20. The driver of that vehicle did not see Luckett lying in the roadway and struck him. Jacques Luckett was pronounced dead at the scene by the Lincoln Parish Coroner’s Office.
The driver of the Toyota Yaris, from the original crash, was not injured.
The driver of the Impala, 36-year-old Rodney Roberts from Louisville, MS, was not injured in the crash.
Impairment is unknown and toxicology tests are pending.
In 2011, Louisiana State Police Troop F Troopers have investigated eight (9) fatal crashes resulting in nine (10) deaths.
