Louisiana State Police Troop F responded to a crash on Interstate 20 near milepost 182 in Madison Parish on Oct. 12 that claimed the life of a man from Fort Worth, Texas.

The initial investigation revealed a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado, driven by 41-year-old Nathan Ribelin of Fort Worth, Texas, was traveling eastbound on Interstate 20. 

For reasons still under investigation, the Silverado rear-ended a 1999 International 18-wheeler that was stopped for traffic. 

After impact, the International 18-wheeler struck the rear of a 2008 Ford F-350 that was also stopped.  Ribelin, who was properly restrained, was transported to a local hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.       A toxicology sample was obtained and submitted for analysis.

The East bound lane crossing the Mississippi River bridge at Vicksburg has been down to one lane for months. The traffic situation is a nightmare and there have been numerous accidents.
