Terrytown – On May 24, 2022, shortly after 4:00 am, Troopers with Louisiana State Police Troop B responded to a single-vehicle crash on US 90B east at Terry Parkway. The crash ultimately claimed the life of 37-year-old Bret Isaac, Jr. of Marrero.
The initial investigation revealed that Isaac was driving a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue east in the right lane of US 90B approaching the Terry Parkway intersection. For reasons still under investigation, as Isaac entered the intersection his vehicle traveled off the roadway to the right and impacted a traffic signal support post.
Isaac, who was unrestrained, was ejected from the vehicle during the crash. He suffered serious injuries and was transported to a local hospital where he later died. Impairment on the part of Isaac is unknown and routine toxicology results are pending.
Troopers would like to remind motorists of the importance of safe decisions behind the wheel. While not all crashes are survivable, wearing a seatbelt greatly reduces the chances of being killed or seriously injured in a crash. Avoid distractions that take the driver’s focus away from the road. Having a plan and making safe decisions could be the difference for tomorrow.
