NOPD Investigates Early Morning Fatal Crash

NOPD is investigating a fatal crash that occurred on U.S.-90B East near the Camp Street exit this morning (September 5).


At approximately 4:32 a.m. NOPD Traffic Fatality Investigators responded to a car crash on the elevated portion of U.S.-90 East near the Camp Street exit. Upon arrival, they learned that a black Honda Accord and a white GMC pickup truck were both headed eastbound when the two vehicles became involved in a crash. As a result of the crash, the 48-year-old male driver of the Honda was ejected from the vehicle and landed in the roadway. Subsequently, another vehicle, Dodge Grand Caravan was traveling eastbound on U. S.-90B East and struck the ejected driver who was on the roadway. He was pronounced dead on the scene.


The investigation is ongoing.
