Horrific Crash On Pontchartrain Causeway Caught On Video
I am not a big fan of driving across long bridges. Since I live in Louisiana I have learned to cope, hope, and pray that my fellow drivers are paying attention to their speed, their lane, and not their phone.
Yesterday the northbound lanes of the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway were closed for several hours because of the accident you can witness on the video above. How this accident happened is beyond my imagination.
The investigation as to why the driver of the pickup truck that slammed into the back of the disabled dump truck continues. Authorities believe the driver of the pickup slammed into the back of the stopped dump truck at highway speed. It's as if he never saw it sitting there.
The driver of the pickup is currently in a Hammond hospital where it was reported that he suffered multiple broken bones. The driver of the dump truck was taken to a hospital for observation.
