Young Mans Life Taken in Tragic Auto Accident

22 year old, Jordan Gautreau was in the process of putting up signs in front of a Baton Rouge church, Healing Place Church, when he was run over by an SUV in the front entrance parking lot. Many of the church members are having a hard time dealing with the death of this young mans life. Troopers said the wreck happened when a Toyota Highlander was side-swiped by a BMW turning left on Highland Road headed to Healing Place Church around 7 a.m. They said the SUV veered off the road and hit Gautreau. State Trooper Russell Graham said the driver of that BMV, Peter Moore, 22, was charged with failure to yield. "It just really goes to show how important it is that we pay very close attention to what we're doing while we're driving," Graham said.
