According to the Louisiana State Police, a 2007 Freightliner 18-wheeler driven by a 67-year-old Lake Charles man was heading east on I-10 when it encountered congestion near mile-marker 54. The trucker failed to reduce his speed and collided with the rear of a 2017 Hyundai Sonata.

The 18-wheeler then veered to the right and struck the rear of a 2015 Mazda CX-5 that was stopped on the roadway due to the congestion. The impact of the crash also caused the Hyundai Sonata to strike an eastbound 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe.
