Driver dies in Airline Highway crash, child ejected
BATON ROUGE – Baton Rouge Police are investigating a fatal crash on Airline Highway that took the life of one driver and ejected a small child from the vehicle.
The crash occurred in the 8000 block of Airline Highway around 10:50 p.m. on Sunday when a Chevrolet Impala was traveling eastbound on Airline in the outside lane. A Cadillac Deville, traveling eastbound in the inside lane, entered the outside lane and struck the Chevrolet.
The Cadillac then exited the roadway in a construction area and struck a concrete driveway. This caused the Cadillac to roll before coming to rest upside down. A small child, appearing to be around three years old, was ejected from the vehicle before it burst into flames.
The driver of the Cadillac, 24-year-old Ronald Dunn, died on the scene.
The driver of the Chevrolet along with the child were taken to an area hospital in stable condition. The crash remains under investigation.
