Amite Man Dies in Two-Vehicle Head-on Collision

On Tuesday, January 19, 2021, shortly before 6:00 am, Louisiana State Police Troop L began investigating a fatal crash on LA 16 west of LA 449 in St. Helena Parish. The crash claimed the life of 69-year-old Clarence Griffin of Amite.

The initial investigation revealed that Griffin was westbound on LA 16 in a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado when an eastbound 2018 Toyota Tundra, driven by 65-year-old Terry MacDonald crossed the center line in front of him. The vehicles impacted head on and came to rest in the roadway. 

MacDonald as well as a 16-year-old passenger were properly restrained and severely injured. They were transported to a local hospital for treatment. Griffin was not restrained during the crash and died on the scene. Impairment is not suspected to be a causal factor in the crash. As part of the ongoing investigation, a blood sample was taken for scientific analysis. The investigation is ongoing and any charges from this incident will be forwarded to the St. Helena Parish District Attorney’s Office.
