Ann Hope Browne‚ of Zachary‚ Louisiana and sister of Louisiana State University (LSU) head football coach Les Miles was killed on Friday‚ April 22‚ 2011‚ around 12:30 p.m. when she was trying to merge from Sugar Mill Plantation Parkway onto the southbound lane of La. 1. The accident was reported upon by the Addis Assistant Police Chief David Jones and the West Baton Rouge Parish Coroner’s Office.
Reportedly‚ Browne turned onto the highway with her 2007 Nissan Sentra when it was struck by a southbound Dodge Ram pickup truck. The truck struck the truck on the driver’s side‚ leaving Browne dead at the scene.
Our hearts go out to Browne’s family‚ including Coach Miles‚ for their loss. The loss of human life from a traffic accident is always heartbreaking. We hope that they find the love and support of their friends and family in this time of need.
From the facts of the auto accident‚ it appears that the other driver is at fault for causing the collision. Drivers must always keep an eye out for merging vehicles and other traffic impediments in the road ahead. However‚ Browne herself may bear some responsibility for causing this wreck. Merging drivers cannot enter the flow of traffic unless and until it is safe to do so. Browne’s family should contact a car accident lawyer who can investigate the cause of the accident and hire traffic accident reconstructionists to determine who was at fault for causing Browne’s death.
