A Church Point man was arrested for vehicular homicide after he allegedly caused a fatal crash due to being impaired.

The Louisiana State Police reports that the incident occurred on Sunday, March 10 shortly before 7:30 p.m. We’re told the suspect, Gerardo Robles, 28, was driving south on LA Hwy. 95 when he struck another vehicle from behind. That impact caused his vehicle to cross the center line and cause a head-on collision.

The vehicle involved in the second crash was being driven by George Fisher, 63, of Eunice. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Six people were treated for injuries due to the crashes.

Troopers believe Robles was impaired at the time of the crash. He was arrested at the scene and charged with Vehicular Homicide and 6 counts of Vehicular Negligent Injury, No Seat Belt, No Driver’s License, and Reckless Operation.

The crash remains under investigation at this time.
