PRAIRIEVILLE, La. (AP) - Deputies say a 33-year-old Prairieville man is accused of attempted murder after repeatedly ramming his SUV into his estranged wife’s car, causing a three-car accident that injured six people.

Ascension Parish deputies say Gerald Asay, who had his infant child in the back seat of his vehicle, spotted his estranged wife about 2:30 p.m. Saturday and started following her as she drove with a male passenger on U.S. 61 in Prairieville.

Maj. Ward Webb said it was unclear whether Asay had been looking for them.

Webb says Asay was booked with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, three counts of negligent injuring, aggravated criminal damage to property and reckless operation of a motor vehicle.

It was unclear whether he has an attorney.
