Slidell man dies in crash

SLIDELL – A Slidell man was killed in a two-vehicle collision on Interstate 10 near Slidell on Monday, Louisiana State Police reported.
The victim was identified as Joseph Landon Brooks II, age 35, according to State Police spokesman Dustin Dwight.
Brooks was driving a 2002 Ford Explorer heading west in the left lane on Sunday at about 8:15 p.m. when, for unknown reasons, the sport utility vehicle ran off the left side of the highway near its interchange with I-12 and I-59, Dwight reported. Brooks then over-corrected to the right and crashed into a vehicle driven by Douglas Thibodeaux, 48, of Cumming, Ga.
The vehicles collided and ran off the right side of the highway into the tree line. Brooks, who was not wearing a seat belt, died on the scene, Dwight said.
Thibodeaux, his wife Muriel, and a juvenile passenger, all properly restrained in their 2016 Toyota Rav4, were moderately injured and were taken to University Medical Center in New Orleans.
Blood samples were obtained, police said. They will be sent to the State Police crime laboratory for analysis.
