A local tow truck operator was killed while he was in the process of towing a vehicle on Interstate ten.
25-year-old Blaze Louviere of Breaux Bridge was on the shoulder of the westbound lane around 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning when he was hit by a car. Troopers say 24-year-old Luis Molina of Texas was driving that vehicle and fled the scene. He was arrested shortly after in Breaux Bridge and was found to be under the influence.
Molina is charged with vehicular homicide and felony hit and run.
