Lafayette police have identified the victim in last Thursday’s fatal crash on I-10 as a Franklinton resident.

Investigators say Michael W. Bertoniere died after he ran his car into the back of an 18-wheeler while driving westbound near the I-49 interchange. Officials say the vehicle became lodged under the big rig after impact.

Bertoniere was pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation into the crash remains ongoing. As part of that investigation, Lafayette police will close the westbound lane of I-10 Tuesday from 9:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. to take measurements relating to the crash.
