Geismar – On December 22, 2022, shortly after 2:00 p.m., Troopers with Louisiana State Police Troop A began investigating a two-vehicle crash on LA 928 east of LA 74 in Ascension Parish. The crash ultimately claimed the life of 62-year-old Michael Head of Geismar.

The initial investigation revealed that Head was driving a 2014 Cadillac SRX headed west on LA 928.   At the same time, a 2013 Toyota 4-Runner was headed east on LA 928.  For reasons still being investigated, Head crossed the center line, entered the eastbound lane, and struck the 4-Runner head-on.
