Curve warning signs erected at site of fatal crash
BURNSIDE - State highway workers installed 22 new signs warning drivers about dangerous curves on a stretch in La. Highway 44 in southern Ascension Parish where a 5-year-old child was killed in a traffic accident Monday.
Crews erected two curve-warning signs and 20 chevron arrow signs for both traffic directions in the section of highway near Burnside on Tuesday.
Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development spokeswoman Lauren Lee says the agency already had developed a plan to have more warning signs installed along La. 44 before the fatal crash.
Makell Andrews, of Sorrento, was partially ejected from his father's pickup in one of the curves on La. 44. Andrews was pronounced dead at the scene.
