FRENCH SETTLEMENT - A man arrested Thursday is facing multiple charges—including DWI—for his involvement in a fatal accident that occurred last month.

On Sept. 13, 39-year-old Brian Jackson of French Settlement was traveling southbound on La. Hwy. 16 near Mecca Road in a Chevrolet pickup truck. Police say he crossed over a double-yellow line and crashed head-on into a Ford F150 driven by 80-year-old Robert McLaughlin, also of French Settlement.

McLaughlin was transported to a hospital in Baton Rouge. Six days later, he succumbed to his injuries.

Jackson was arrested Oct. 3 and booked into the Livingston Parish Detention Center for vehicular homicide and 2nd offense DWI.
