Another Pedestrian Struck and Killed by West Baton Rouge Sheriff’s deputy
Another pedestrian has been struck and killed by a West Baton Rouge Sheriff’s deputy.
An on-duty West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s deputy whose driver’s license had been suspended struck and killed a pedestrian early Friday while on the way to pick up inmates from a work-release site, said State Police spokesman Taylor Scrantz.
Deputy Alberto Casco, 20, of Brusly, will be cited for driving under suspended license, Scrantz said Friday afternoon.
Casco hit pedestrian Clinell Robertson, 37, of Plaquemine, just after 1:30 a.m. on La. 1 south of Emily Drive, Scrantz said. Robertson was walking across the southbound lanes of traffic in dark clothing when he was hit, according to State Police.
Another West Baton Rouge Parish resident and Fisher Injury Lawyers client was struck by a West Baton Rouge Sheriff’s deputy resulting in the loss of her leg. Indeed, we have represented far too many injured pedestrians and bicyclists. Sadly, these are not isolated incidents. Louisiana is among the most dangerous states for pedestrians and bicyclists. Let’s keep are eyes on the road and on the look out for our neighbors crossing and riding the roads.
