Baton Rouge, LA – Three People Loose Their Lives in Two Different Car Accidents
Louisiana State Police reported that two people were killed in a collision near Zachary and one person was killed in a collision near Gonzales within two hours overnight Saturday.
A single-vehicle accident was reported around 10 p.m. Saturday on U.S. Highway 61 near La. 964, according to a press release issued Monday afternoon. Christopher Bourgeois, 30, and Cameron Davis, 27, both of Baton Rouge were killed in the collision.
According to the release, a 2009 Chevrolet Silverado was traveling south on U.S. 61 with two passengers when, for reasons still under investigation, it ran off the road to the right and overturned several times.
All three victims were not wearing seatbelts and were thrown from the vehicle, according to authorities. Davis died at the scene, while Bourgeois died at the hospital, and the other passenger was admitted with severe injuries.
A second wreck occurred around midnight, on La. 938 south of La. 74, when a vehicle rear-ended another car. Willie Owens, 56, of Gonzales was killed as a result of the collision, according to authorities.
In a horrific vehicle accident, a 1991 Chevrolet Camaro struck the pedestrian Owens as he was walking in the northbound lane of La. 938; the car then veered off the road and hit a utility pole.
The driver of the Camaro, 31-year-old Jasper Bougere of Gonzales, was arrested on a charge of vehicular homicide and a first-time DWI count.
