Warren Beemer tragically killed during I-10 crash in Louisiana

WEST BATON ROUGE PARISH, La.—Warren Beemer, a 52-year-old man from Fair Oaks Ranch, Texas, sadly died April 1 in a two-vehicle crash on eastbound Interstate 10, just west of Louisiana Highway 415.

State troopers said Beemer was driving east on I-10 when he reportedly struck the rear of a tractor-trailer stopped in traffic in front of him. Beemer was restrained when the crash occurred. Officials pronounced him dead at the scene.

The semi-driver was also restrained. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

An investigation into the crash is underway. No additional information was immediately available.

Thoughts on the fatal accident that killed Warren Beemer

I am saddened to learn of the untimely death of Mr. Warren Beemer and extend my deepest condolences to the Beemer family during this difficult time.

A lot of folks will look at a rear-end collision and conclude the rear-ending driver is fully responsible for the accident. While there is some truth to this assumption, it is far from fact. My firm routinely handles rear-end collisions that are largely, or entirely, outside the control of the rear-ending driver. For instance, I handled a case recently where the rear-ending vehicle smashed into a semi-driving below the posted speed limit without lights. Clearly, in that case, rational minds would conclude the rear-ending driver was not responsible. This is just one example of many where the fault isn’t as clear as it seems.

It is important for the Beemer family to request a copy of the accident report, and if needed, have an independent investigation of the accident scene conducted. The report indicates Mr. Beemer crashed into the truck while stopped in traffic but provides little on the reason for the stop. Even if stopped for traffic, there are questions that need to be answered. The unexpecting passing of a loved one has a dramatic impact on the family left behind. If Mr. Beemer’s passing was the result of another’s negligence, the Beemer family deserves justice.
