luling, la (nbc33) — State Police are searching a hit-and-run driver who struck a pedestrian on I-310 last week.
Officials say the incident happened on Tuesday, Feb. 26 shortly before 7:00 p.m. We’re told the victim, Greg Boudreaux, 37, of Destrehan, was standing on the shoulder after a mattress he was transporting fell out of his truck.
Boudreaux turned his vehicle around on I-310 at LA 18 to return to the location where the mattress fell out. He then stopped on the right shoulder of I-310 and crossed to the left shoulder. While he was waiting to try and cross, he was struck by a passing vehicle and sustained moderate injuries.
The vehicle that hit Boudreaux did not stop to render aid. A headlight and mirror from the vehicle was left at the scene and troopers have determined that it belongs to a 2005 Chevrolet Impala. The vehicle will have damage to the left front and will also be missing the side mirror on the driver’s side.
Anyone with information regarding this vehicle is asked to call Troop B at (504) 471-2775.
