Louisiana State Police today says troopers have arrested a 27-year-old man in connection with a fatal wreck in St. James Parish two months ago. Keimone Mitchell faces vehicular homicide charges for the November 2 crash on LA 18 in Vacherie that took the life of 28-year-old Ramon Domino.
"The preliminary investigation revealed...Mitchell was traveling south on LA 18 in a 2008 Hummer H3. Domino was traveling north on LA 18 in a 2011 Nissan Altima," said State Police. "Mitchell crossed the centerline and struck Domino’s vehicle head-on. Domino was not wearing his seat belt and suffered fatal injuries.
