ALBANY, La. – A truck driver has been charged with negligent homicide and reckless operation after police say he slammed his truck into the back of another vehicle on Interstate 12, killing an 18-month-old girl and injuring two others.
The crash happened at around 8 a.m. on April 7 near the Livingston-Tangipahoa Parish line, according to Louisiana State Police (LSP).
The LSP said that 60-year-old Predrag Bisevac of Lisle, Illinois, failed to stop as he approached standstill traffic on the eastbound side of the interstate.
