The crash involved a 2006 Nissan Sentra driven by Gregory Perrilloux, 53, of Reserve and a 2007 Toyota Corolla driven by 58-year-old Lynn S. Taravella of Destrehan. According to State Police, the Nissan was traveling eastbound on River Road at a high rate of speed when the driver crossed the center line of the two lane roadway striking the Toyota driven by Taravella head on as she headed in the opposite direction.
The Perrilloux of the Nissan suffered fatal injuries as a result of the crash and was pronounced dead on the scene. His identity is being withheld pending notification of his next of kin.
Taravella, the driver of the Toyota, was seriously injured in the crash and was taken the St. Charles Parish Hospital for treatment.
