SLIDELL, La. — A man is dead after a crash that sent four others — including an infant — to the hospital Friday night in Slidell, deputies said.
First reports from deputies at the scene said, a woman driving a blue Nissan sedan east on East Howze Beach Road turned left, crossing into the path of a black Ford pickup truck that was traveling west.
The pickup driver, the woman driving the sedan, and two of her passengers, — an adult and an infant — were taken to a local hospital for medical treatment after the collision, deputies with the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office said in a release.
The fourth passenger in the Nissan sedan was a man who died at the scene, STPSO deputies said.
Several comments on an STPSO social media post about the collision said the accident happened in front of a car dealership.
The statement from deputies described Howze Beach Road as the I-10 service road.
Deputies looking into the fatal crash said the collision and what caused it remains under investigation but released no other information to the public.
