LAFAYETTE PARISH, LA (KPLC) - A Crowley man is dead after a four-vehicle accident Sunday night on La 342.

Joshua Ware, 33, of Lafayette, was heading east on La 342 driving a 2012 Ford F350, when he struck the back of a 2001 Chevrolet Corvette, driven by Phillip Meaux, 49, of Crowley.

Ware pushed Meaux's vehicle into a 2009 Nisan Altima, driven by Jessica Peltier, 37, of Lafayette.

Ware's vehicle continued to move forward onto the roof of the Corvette and Altima before flipping on its side and sliding into a 2004 Ford Focus operated by Madison Dugas, 17, of Duson.

Although all the drivers were wearing seatbelts, Meaux was pronounced dead at the scene by the Lafayette Parish Coroner's Office. Peltier was sent to a local hospital after suffering minor injuries. 

Routine toxicology samples were taken from all drivers and were sent the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis.

The crash remains under investigation.
