Thibodaux man killed in 3 vehicle accident

HOUMA, La. (AP) — State police are investigating a three-vehicle crash that claimed the life of a Thibodaux man.
The accident happened just before 10 p.m. Saturday on Louisiana Highway 311.

Trooper Evan Harrell says a car driven by 34-year-old Chad Labat crossed the center line and hit a car being driven by 53-year-old Kirk Craig of Metairie. Harrell says Labat's car was split into three pieces. He says one of the pieces struck a pickup.

Harrell says Labat was ejected from his car and died at the scene.

He says the drivers of the other vehicle were taken a Thibodaux hospital for treatment to moderate injuries.
