Officer George Tessier was struck and killed by the driver of a tractor-trailer truck while standing on the side of westbound I-10.

Officer Tessier and a second officer were preparing to escort a tractor-trailer on I-10. The tractor-trailer was parked on the shoulder of the interstate, behind two marked patrol cars.

A second truck was traveling westbound when it veered off the interstate and struck the side of the parked tractor-trailer, and then struck Officer Tessier, who was standing near the front of the truck and his patrol car.

Officer Tessier was taken to the Medical Center of Louisiana, where he later died from injuries sustained in the collision.

The officer had served with the New Orleans Police Department for 10 years. He is survived by his mother and sister.
