A Louisiana state trooper is accused of causing a fatal accident in Texas in which he hit and killed a pedestrian with his truck.
Louisiana State Police say 45-year-old Patrick Bell had been on workers' comp since 2017 at the time of the accident in late August.
Bell was reportedly driving on Texas State Highway 63 when his truck drifted off the roadway and hit a pedestrian on the shoulder.
He was arrested Wednesday on a charge of intoxication manslaughter and is awaiting extradition to Texas.
