Plattenville man dies after head-on collision with street sweeper

ASSUMPTION PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

State Police says a man lost his life in a crash in Napoleonville Saturday morning.

Troopers investigating the scene say a 2000 Saturn LS, driven by 25-year-old Anthony Cox of Plattenville, was travelling north on LA 1 in Assumption Parish. For unknown reasons, as the Cox entered a right curve on LA 1, he crossed the center line into the southbound lane.

At the same time, a GMC street sweeper was traveling south on LA 1 and entered the same curve. The two vehicles collided head-on. Cox, who was wearing his seat belt, was transported to an area hospital where he later died from his injuries.

The driver of the street sweeper was also transported to an area hospital for moderate injuries.

Impairment is not suspected to be a factor in this crash. Blood was taken from both drivers and test results are pending at the Louisiana State Crime Lab.
