Pedestrian Killed in St. Charles Parish Crash

St. Charles Parish – Shortly after 5:30 am, on Saturday April 4, Louisiana State Police Troop B investigated a fatal crash involving a pedestrian on US 90 near Pier 90. The crash claimed the life of 54-year-old Johnnie Faulkner of Marrero.

Preliminary investigation revealed that Faulkner was walking eastbound on US 90 in the right lane of travel near the intersection of Pier 90. At the same time, A 2013 Honda Civic was also traveling eastbound on US 90 in the right lane. For reasons still under investigation, Faulkner was struck by the Honda Civic. Faulkner suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver of the Honda was properly restrained and not injured. Impairment is not suspected and toxicology reports are pending for both the driver and pedestrian. This crash is still under investigation and no further information is available at this time.

Pedestrians and motorists alike are urged to remain vigilant while on area roadways and pay close attention to their surroundings. Crashes involving pedestrians can often be avoided by following some basic safety guidelines. Pedestrians should wear light-colored or reflective clothing and should always avoid walking on the roadway in dark areas. Pedestrians must also assume that approaching motorists cannot see them, especially at night. Crossing roadways only in well-lit, designated areas and always walking facing traffic will enhance the safety for pedestrians.
