Just last month we reported on a fiery hit-and-run accident that took place in Jefferson Parish on I-10 near the Veterans Boulevard overpass. The driver of a Mercury Grand Marquis sideswiped a semi-truck, causing it to lose control which then led to one of its trailers flipping over the edge of the elevated expressway and catching fire.

The driver of the Mercury – 36-year-old Brandon Eserman of Marrero – then fled the scene of the accident, leaving the car parked in Metairie.
