Baton Rouge, LA (June 6, 2019) – During the onset of storms in Louisiana and Oklahoma today, one person died and property sustained extensive damage.
This morning, the Baton Rouge Mayor confirmed one person had died in the city following the onset of flood waters accompanying the dangerous storms. Earlier today, members of the Baton Rouge Police Department attempted to rescue the victim, who had been trapped inside a pickup truck stalled in a flooded street.
A news source confirmed the victim succumbed to severe injuries and died.
This accident accompanies a string of tragic accidents that had taken place in Oklahoma as well.
We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family of the deceased driver. Our thoughts are with them.
Even the safest roadways can become death traps after deadly weather brushes through the state. Besides issues with flash floods and overflowing rivers, residents of Louisiana also have to deal with subsequent problems related to poorly maintained roadways and dams. In a split second, a flood can inflict tremendous physical and emotional damage on victims.
