GONZALES- A Houston man is dead after a crash in Ascension Parish.

It happened around 2:30am Saturday morning.

According to police, Christian Salinas stepped into the path of an 18-wheeler travelling west on LA 30 near Ashland Road.

Reportedly the driver, Aaron Dunbar, saw Salinas but wasn't able to stop his car in time.

32-year-old Salinas was pronounced dead on the scene.

Police say Dunbar stopped his vehicle and notified authorities of the crash.

Dunbar voluntarily submitted a breath sample. Police say it came back with no detectable alcohol in his system.

However, troopers suspect alcohol to have been a factor for Salinas and have submitted his blood for analysis.

This is the third fatal crash involving a pedestrian in this area in less than a week.
