Slidell Man Dies in Crash with Freightliner on I-55

Yesterday afternoon (October 25, 2018) Louisiana State Police Troop B was notified of a two vehicle fatal crash that claimed the life of 23 year-old Justin Weaver of Slidell, LA. The crash occurred on I-55 south at mile post 11.7.

Preliminary investigation revealed that a 2015 Freightliner, driven by 38 year-old Sidney Jarrell of Denham Springs, LA, was stopped in the right lane due to traffic congestion from a previous crash. A 2009 Mazda MZ6, driven by Weaver, was approaching the stopped traffic but failed to stop and struck the rear of the Freightliner. Weaver was pronounced dead on the scene. The front seat passenger in the Mazda, 22 year-old Samantha Niemeck was transported to a local hospital with moderate injuries. Jarrell was transported with minor injuries.
