Shortly before 01:00 AM on July 11, 2021, Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop L began investigating a hit and run crash that occurred on US 190 at the intersection of LA 445 in Tangipahoa Parish. The crash resulted in a total of four injuries. One adult passenger received moderate injuries. The adult driver, as well as the child and infant passenger, received minor injuries.
The initial investigation by State Police revealed that the crash occurred as the victim’s vehicle was traveling eastbound on US 190.
