Joseph Jaeger, Jr. of Folsom Killed in Crash

On June 19, 2024, shortly before 5:45 a.m., Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop L began investigating a two-vehicle crash on LA Hwy 25 near J Core Road in St. Tammany Parish. The crash claimed the life of 77-year-old Joseph Jaeger Jr. of Folsom.

The preliminary investigation revealed that the crash occurred as a 2024 GMC Terrain, driven by Jaeger, was stopped in a private drive, preparing to turn onto LA Hwy 25. At the same time, a 2020 Chevrolet Silverado was traveling northbound on LA Hwy 25. For reasons still under investigation, the GMC entered the roadway into the path of the Chevrolet. As a result, the Chevrolet struck the front driver’s side of the GMC.

Despite Jaeger being properly restrained, he sustained serious injuries and was transported to a local hospital. Jaeger ultimately succumbed to his injuries on June 23, 2024. The driver of the Chevrolet was not properly restrained but remains uninjured. This investigation remains ongoing.
