Pedestrian Killed In Natchitoches Parish Crash
Earlier today, a crash involving two vehicles and a pedestrian killed a man from Grand Cane, LA.

Troopers responded to the crash around 3:00 pm, which occurred on I-49 near LA Hwy 119. The crash involved a 2005 Mack (18 wheeler), driven by Steven Gipson (B/M 44 yrs) of Wills Point, TX, 1995 Ford pickup, and a pedestrian, identified as John G. Perry Jr.(W/M 51 yrs). The Mack was south bound on I-49 traveling in the outside lane while the Ford was stopped on the outside shoulder of I-49 southbound due to a tire failure. Perry Jr. was standing in the driver’s doorway of the Ford, with the door open, prior to the crash. Gipson’s vehicle traveled onto the south bound outside shoulder and collided with the Ford before colliding with Perry Jr.

Gipson was not injured.

Perry Jr. was pronounced dead at the scene. Perry’s only passenger, identified as Victor W. Thrasher (W/M 49 yrs) of Gloster, LA, was not injured.

Routine toxicology tests and charges are pending. The crash remains under investigation.

If your vehicle becomes disabled due to tire failure, remember the first thing to consider is your safety. If you are on a bridge or a part of the highway with limited shoulder space, then proceed on until you reach an area that is safe such as an exit ramp or parking lot. Try to always carry some type of warning device such as flares or reflectors. Place these warning devices at least two hundred feet in the direction of traffic that will endanger you. Any motorist that feels he/she needs assistance may call Louisiana State Police at *577 (*LSP) from any cellular phone.

and then on the way back at same exit, on the other side there was another vehicle changing a tire extremely close to the hwy...I just wondered if they'd known what had just happened across the interstate...if they had have the guy would have surely pulled over further...

From what i understand, this man WAS off the highway. He was ON the shoulder. WHY was this mack driving in the right lane ANYWAY since there was a vehichle changing a tire on the shoulder??????
not only does the article state he was on the shoulder - he was on the OUTSIDE of the shoulder.

PEOPLE - IF YOU SEE VEHICHLES ON THE SHOULDER - GET IN THE LEFT LANE IF POSSIBLE!!!!
MAKE ADJUSTMENTS TO YOUR DRIVING TO GET IN THE LEFT LANE!
IF YOU HAVE TO SLOW DOWN OR SPEED UP TO GET IN THE LEFT LANE THEN PLEASE DO SO!
JUST HAVE ENOUGH RESPECT AND DECENCY TO SHARE THE ROAD!!!

ftw...smh.

Hope, you're right, he was off. The 18-wheeler crossed way over onto the shoulder. Where John was should have been a safe distance. Today we said goodbye to our friend.

Thank you!!
