Louisiana State Police say that a Breaux Bridge man died after rear-ending an 18-wheeler on I-10 West on Saturday afternoon.

81-year-old Larry Causey died after he ran into the back of an 18-wheeler that stopped because of traffic congestion shortly after noon on Saturday.

Louisiana State Police say that Causey failed to stop, and steered his vehicle to the right, striking the corner of the big rig's trailer. Causey was transferred to OLOL hospital, where he died from injuries sustained from the crash.

The condition of the driver of the 18-wheeler has not been released, but Louisiana State Police say that he was not impaired at the time of the crash.
