Kansas couple killed after colliding with dump truck
The fatal crash occurred on LA 3127 north at mile post 8.2, which is near the Nelson Coleman Correctional Center. According to the preliminary investigation, the dump truck, which was driven by 54-year-old Michael Morrison, was traveling south on LA 3127 when its left front tire failed.
The dump truck veered into the northbound lane and hit the Toyota Highlander, which was driven by 67-year-old Edgar Walden, of Leawood, Kan. Walden and his front seat passenger, Joann Walden, 58, were pronounced dead on the scene.
Morrison was transported to the Interim LSU Public Hospital in critical condition.
Seat belts were used by all occupants and speed and alcohol are not considered to be factors in the crash. However, toxicology results are pending.
