Thibodaux man killed in three car wreck this morning.



Taken from the DailyComet.com:

Article here.

quote:

RACELAND — A Thibodaux man was killed in a three-vehicle crash Thursday morning on La. 1 north of Raceland, authorities said.

Kristofor Toups, 28, was pronounced dead at the scene after a dump truck pushed him off the road, State Police said.

Toups's pickup was struck by a Nissan Maxima driven by James Dantin, 51, of Raceland, police said. The pickup was pushed into the oncoming traffic lane, hit on the passenger side and pushed off the road by a dump truck driven by Eric Smith, 44, of Thibodaux, police said.

The Nissan Maxima drove off the road and landed in a ditch, police said.

Dantin was transported to Thibodaux Regional Medical Center with serious injuries. Smith received minor injuries but refused medical treatment.

Dantin was allegedly speeding, and charges against him are pending, police said. It is unknown if alcohol was a factor in the wreck. Blood was drawn from all three drivers, as required by state law for all serious crashes.

Toups was an employee of Lafourche Animal Hospital and was transporting animals to its Cut Off branch, co-workers said.

Firefighters had to extricate Toups from the smashed pickup.

Residents said they heard a loud "boom" when the crash happened.

Updated to include the name of the victim, the scenario and the names of the drivers.



KC was a friend to many. A few posters here had the pleasure of knowing him and knew what a great person he was.


Be safe on your way home this afternoon OT.

re: Thibodaux man killed in three car wreck this morning.


I was told that he was killed by a drunk driver. The guy was just recently released from jail on another drunk driving charge.

He went to pass K.C. in the 80-90mph range, cut K.C. off, and pushed him into the oncoming traffic.


I hope he fricking rots in hell. He took a friend from me b/c he was fricking stupid

Terrible situation. I knew him casually through a handful of mutual friends, seemed to be a pretty good dude.

I had only read what was in the article though, hadn't heard the other rumors posted above. If true, that's seriously messed up.

The article I posted was updated to include his name, the other drivers' names and the actual events of the crash.


I dont know about the speed, previous charges or the BAC of the driver of the car.

K.C. graduated high school with you? I always thought he was a couple years older than us, but I saw in the paper that he was our age.

Yes, he graduated with me. We even had a couple courses together at LSU. Black may have known him a lot better, but he was always a nice guy to me and we got along like palskis.

Not sure. We hung out with KC and his buddes a lot my first few years at LSU. We tailgated with them as well.

I'd see him around BR occasionally and we'd catch up.

we went to junior high together. Played football, had classes, etc.

He was one to always help someone in need. We weren't best friends, but we were friends. He's the type that you can go years without seeing, but when you do see each other, you can talk for hours about nothing.

That's the biggest thing I took away from him. We didn't know each other well, but when I would run into him he always seemed genuinely happy to see you and catch up.
