TERREBONNE – A three-vehicle crash in Terrebonne Parish killed a Houma man Monday afternoon, according to Louisiana State Police.
Troopers said 51-year-old Herbert Jackson died from his injuries, and was not wearing his seat belt when the wreck happened.
Investigators said Jackson was driving his pickup north on LA 24 in Bourg when he crossed over into the other lane on a curve, hitting another pickup head-on. A car directly behind the other pickup was hit by debris from the initial impact.
The drivers of the other vehicles were wearing their seat belts; the pickup drive received moderate injuries, while the car driver received no injuries.
Investigators do not suspect alcohol was a factor in the crash.
