A 47-year-old Charlotte man was killed in a crash on Wednesday in Louisiana.

According to Louisiana State Police, 47-year-old Christopher E. Attinelli, of Charlotte, was killed in a crash along Interstate 10 in the Iberville Parish on Wednesday night around 9 p.m.

State Police say Attinelli's 1998 Ford Mustang entered the median and crossed into the westbound lanes of I-10.

That's when the Mustang crossed the the path of a 2000 Toyota pickup truck, driven by a Baton Rouge man, was hit.

Attinelli, who was not wearing his seatbelt, was ejected from the Mustang and sustained fatal injuries from the crash, state police say.

The other driver and his passenger suffered only minor injuries.
