Troopers identify man killed when pickup truck swept off Hwy 10
ST. HELENA PARISH - State Police have identified a Greensburg man who was killed Friday night after his pickup truck was swept off Highway 10 by flood water.
The body of 54-year-old Samuel Muse was recovered by St. Helena firefighters just before dark. His remains were found off the roadway on the south side of LA 10 at Darlings Creek, three miles west of LA 1043.
Muse’s vehicle became submerged in water after he tried to drive through high water and his vehicle was swept off the road. There were several feet of water crossing LA 10 at the time, and Muse’s vehicle became completely covered.
The vehicle will not be recovered until flood waters recede.
Louisiana State Police would like to remind citizens that traveling though flood water on roadways is extremely dangerous. Water can move very quickly and it can easily move vehicles without the driver’s control. Also, it is impossible to properly navigate the road when it is submerged; you will not see ditches or canals that could be in the area and this can lead to death. Please do not attempt to drive through high water, pay attention to Road Closed/Detour signage and travel only if necessary.
