RAMAH, La. (AP) - State police say a 50-year-old Lafayette man died when his small SUV crashed into the rear of an 18-wheeler on Interstate 10 in Iberville Parish

Trooper Bryan Lee says the accident happened early Friday morning just west of the Ramah exit.

Lee says Alton Ortega died in the crash.

He says two 18-wheeler were stopped in the right lane because of a previous accident and Ortega swerved to the left and then back to the right and hit one of the trailers.

Lee says Ortega was pronounced dead at the scene by the Iberville Parish Coroner’s Office.
