21-Year-Old Driver Killed After Crashing Into Horse

This morning (May 26, 2019), at approximately 2:53 AM, Troopers from Louisiana State Police
Troop L responded to a fatal crash on LA 1040 [Old Baton Rouge Highway] near Baker Lane in Tangipahoa Parish. The crash has claimed the life of 21-year-old Javonte Lamone Johnson.

Troopers determined that the crash occurred as Johnson was driving a 2011 Ford Fiesta eastbound on LA 1040. A dark colored horse was standing in the eastbound lane. Johnson braked and swerved slightly to the left, but struck the horse. The impact caused heavy damage to the windshield and roof of Johnson’s vehicle. Following the crash, Johnson’s vehicle continued beneath the horse, ran off the left side of the roadway, and overturned.

Johnson was unrestrained at the time of the crash. He was ejected from his vehicle and sustained fatal injuries. He was pronounced deceased on scene by the Tangipahoa Parish Coroner’s Office. Ownership of the horse is part of the ongoing investigation.
