BIENVILLE PARISH, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — A Haynesville man is dead after his car was rear-ended by an 18-wheeler on Interstate 20 eastbound early Wednesday morning.

As a result of the impact, both vehicles veered off the roadway and crashed in a ditch. Mosby, who was wearing a seatbelt, suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Calvillo was wearing a seatbelt and was not injured.
Routine toxicology samples were taken and will be submitted for analysis. Louisiana State Police say the cause of the crash is still under investigation.
