Alvarado Espinosa Obituary, Death – Members of Louisiana State Police Troop A in East Baton Rouge Parish launched an investigation into a single-car crash this morning. The accident happened on Interstate 10 east of LA 3246. (Siegen Lane). Javier Alexander Alvarado-Espinosa, 39, of Baton Rouge, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. According to preliminary investigation findings, Alvarado-Espinosa was driving a Honda Civic east on Interstate 10 in the left lane in 2012. Espinosa’s Alvarado vehicle veered to the left for unknown reasons, collided with a wall, and rolled over multiple times before coming to a stop. The Honda Civic then flipped over on its side on the inner shoulder.
Despite being properly restrained, Alvarado-Espinosa sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Both occupants on the passenger side were safely restrained, and they suffered only minor injuries. The back passenger on the driver’s side was not restrained during the collision and suffered moderate injuries as a result. Everyone on board was taken to a nearby medical facility for treatment by ambulance. As part of the ongoing investigation, a toxicological sample was taken from the driver and will be submitted for scientific analysis. The investigation is still in progress. The cause of this accident has yet to be determined.
Troopers would like to take this opportunity to remind motorists to always use sound judgment when driving. This is a reminder for them to take advantage of. If you are inebriated, tired, or distracted, never get behind the wheel. Always ensure that all occupants are securely restrained, and follow all driving regulations. Taking simple safety precautions like these can frequently mean the difference between life and death. Wearing one’s seat belt correctly is one of the most effective ways to protect one’s life and lessen the severity of injuries sustained in collisions.
