Speed a Factor in Fatal Crash With 18-Wheeler

Today (Wednesday, June 3, 2020) shortly after midnight, Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop
L responded to a fatal crash on Interstate 12 westbound near Airport Road in Tangipahoa Parish. The crash claimed the life of 30-year-old Jory W. Thaxton.

The initial investigation led Troopers to determine that Thaxton was traveling westbound on Interstate 12 in the right lane at a high rate of speed in a 2016 Toyota Corolla. For reasons still under investigation, Thaxton rear-end impacted a 2010 Freightliner 18-wheeler driven by 56-year-old Leon Roland of Phoenix Arizona. Thaxton sustained severe injuries in the crash and was transported to a local hospital before being pronounced deceased. Seat-belts were used by both drivers and impairment is not suspected.
