A 19-year-old Franklinton man is dead after a two vehicle crash in Washington Parish. Troopers say Sunday evening at approximately 6:30 P.M., the crash happened on La. 25 at the intersection of La. 438 near Warnerton
Troopers say Taylor Miller was driving a 1998 Chevrolet Lumina eastbound on La. 438 approaching La. 25 near mile marker 38, when he failed to stop at a stop sign. That's when, troopers say, Miller was struck on the right side by a Peterbilt truck, driven by 38-year-old Cameron Lee of Tylertown, Mississippi.
Miller was not restrained and was air-lifted to the Interim LSU Hospital LEVEL 1 Trauma Center in New Orleans. Troopers say that Miller died Tuesday from injuries sustained from the crash. Impairment on Miller's part is unknown and a blood sample was unable to be collected. Lee was restrained, not injured, and he voluntarily submitted a breath sample revealing no detectable alcohol in his system. The crash remains under investigation.
