Troop L responded to a five vehicle fatal crash on I-12 near LA 1088 in St. Tammany Parish. The crash has claimed the life of 44-year-old Byron Lee Sanford of Laurel, MS.

Troopers determined that Sanford was driving a 2014 Ford F-150 eastbound on Interstate 12 in the left lane. Traffic ahead of Sanford had slowed to a stop due to traffic congestion. For reasons still under investigation, Sanford failed to observe the stopping vehicles ahead of him and crashed into the rear of a 2008 Chevrolet pickup truck, causing a chain reaction five vehicle crash.

Sanford was unrestrained at the time of the crash. He sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased on-scene. The driver of the Chevrolet truck was properly restrained and sustained moderate injuries and was transported to an area hospital.

Impairment is not suspected to have been a contributing factor in this crash.
