Acadia Parish – Louisiana State Police Troop I was notified of a two-vehicle crash on LA Highway 3070 (McCain Road) near Ellis Road in Acadia Parish shortly before 7:00 a.m. on October 6, 2020. The crash ultimately claimed the life of 30-year-old Christopher Guillory of Iota.

The preliminary investigation revealed a 1997 Ford F150, driven by Guillory, was traveling north on LA 3070. At the same time, a 2013 Toyota Tacoma pickup was traveling south on LA 3070. For reasons still under investigation, Guillory’s F150 crossed the center line. The F150 struck the Tacoma head-on in the southbound lane of travel.
Troopers determined Guillory was unrestrained at the time of the crash. He was transported to a local hospital in critical condition where he later succumbed to his injuries. The driver of the Tacoma was also unrestrained and was transported to a local hospital in critical condition. Toxicology samples were taken from both drivers and results are pending. This crash remains under investigation.
