Sometimes the most dangerous part of a drive is at the very end or the very beginning. Pulling in and out of a driveway is risky because you can’t always see the traffic around you. One couple in Vinton has paid the ultimate price because of a situation like this. KPLC reports.
A married couple was killed turning into their home’s driveway according to Louisiana State Police. The crash happened on Highway 109 south of Foreman Road on the afternoon of April 8.
The couple was turning left into their home’s driveway when a pickup truck collided with the rear of the vehicle. That driver didn’t slow down. The impact killed the couple at the scene, while the truck driver received minor injuries.
Police have not pressed any charges yet, but they have taken toxicology samples for testing.

We do not know from this report exactly what happened. It could be the couple took a chance and tried to beat the truck or perhaps didn’t signal correctly. It could also be that the truck driver was inattentive. It is the job of investigators and lawyers to tease out the facts of a case and present them to the courts for judgment.
We hope that the investigation proceeds swiftly and that justice is done.
