A school bus was involved in head on collision this morning in Terrebonne Parish.
"Shortly after 6:30 a.m. on October 21, 2020, Louisiana State Police Troop C was notified of a two-vehicle crash on LA Highway 56 (Little Caillou Road), near Merle Street, in Terrebonne Parish," Trooper Thomas Gossen said in a news release.
He says the vehicles were a school bus and a pickup truck.
"The crash claimed the life of 43-year-old Troy Anthony Lyons of Schriever."
The trooper say that the preliminary investigation revealed Lyons was driving a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado south on Little Caillou Road.
"At the same time, a Terrebonne Parish school bus was traveling north on LA 56. For reasons still under investigation, Lyons’ pickup crossed the center line and struck the school bus head-on in the northbound lane of travel."
Lyons was pronounced dead on the scene. Gossen said Lyons was wearing a seatbelt.
"The driver of the school bus was properly restrained and was not injured. At the time of the crash, 16 students were on the bus. Two students were transported to a local hospital with minor injuries."
The crash remains under investigation.
