RAYNE - State police are investigating a three vehicle crash on La. Highway 95 north of Interstate 10 which claimed the life of a Eunice man.

The accident happened Sunday around 7:30 p.m.

Troopers say 28-year-old Gerardo Robles of Church Point was driving a truck south on Highway 95 and struck the rear of an SUV driven by 58-year-old Mary Dupuis of Scott.

After the initial impact, Trooper Stephen Hammons says Robles' vehicle crossed the centerline and struck a car, driven by 63-year-old George Fisher of Eunice, head-on.

Fisher was pronounced dead at the scene.

Once he released from the hospital, Robles will be booked with vehicular homicide, six counts of vehicular negligent injury and reckless operation.

The crash remains under investigation.
