Truck Driver Arrested, Charged. See His Offence

Micheal Chukwuebuka, Reporting 

A truck driver has been charged with negligent homicide for his role in a fiery highway pileup that left eight dead last year after a super fog of marsh fire smoke and dense fog snared more than 160 vehicles, NBC News has reported.

On Oct. 23, Ronald Britt, from Lafayette, was operating a truck at unsafe speeds on Interstate 55 west of New Orleans when he slammed into the back of a car that had stopped in the left lane behind several other vehicles involved in minor crashes.

Louisiana State Police said in a statement that the collision killed 60-year-old James Fleming and seriously injured his wife.

Britt, a 61-year-old commercial truck driver, was arrested on multiple charges, including negligent homicide, negligent injuring, reckless operation and other traffic-related offenses, Stonix News has gathered.

Britt voluntarily surrendered to authorities Monday.

It was unknown if he has an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
