One Killed and Six injured in St. Charles Parish Crash

Killona – Shortly after 4 p.m. on Friday, Troop B began investigating a three-vehicle fatality crash on LA 3127 south of LA 640. The crash took the life of 36-year-old Rodolfo Trevino of Kenner.

The preliminary investigation revealed Trevino was traveling south on LA 3127 in a 2006 Toyota Tundra. For unknown reasons, Trevino crossed the centerline and struck a 2013 Ford Explorer that was northbound on LA 3127. It was being driven by 39-year-old Marjorie Delatte-Delaune of Vacherie. Trevino continued south after impact and struck a 2015 Chevrolet Traverse being driven by 46-year-old Brent Bourgeois of Cut Off. Trevino was properly restrained but suffered fatal injuries as a result of this impact. Bourgeois and his four passengers were properly restrained but all suffered injuries ranging from moderate to serious. They were transported to University Medical Center in New Orleans for treatment. Delaune was properly restrained and suffered minor injuries. Impairment is not suspected as a factor but toxicology tests are pending. Speed is considered a factor on the part of Trevino. This crash remains under investigation and no further information is available at this time.

Louisiana State Troopers would like to take this opportunity to remind motorists to always make good decisions while operating motor vehicles. Never drive while impaired, fatigued, or distracted. Always ensure every occupant is properly restrained, pay close attention to recent changes in child passenger seat laws, and follow all traffic laws. Taking simple precautions such as these can often mean the difference between life and death.
