FOLSOM, La. (AP) - A Jefferson man has died from injuries he received in a three-vehicle on La. Highway 25 near Folsom.

State police say a driver from Mount Hermon was booked with vehicular homicide, DWI and improper lane usage.

Trooper Greg Marchand identified the victim as 66-year-old Gary White. He died at a New Orleans hospital. The other drivers were not injured.

Marchand says White was southbound on Highway 25 Tuesday afternoon when a northbound pickup driven by 76-yearold James Albury crossed the center line.

Marchand says White swerved in an attempt to avoid the crash but the two trucks collided head-on. A third pickup ran off the road to avoid the accident.

Albury was booked at the St. Tammany Parish jail in Covington.

It was unclear whether he has an attorney.
