St. Martin Parish
Known for its high prevalence of French-speaking residents, St. Martin Parish is home to over 52,000 residents and is located in Central Louisiana. The parish was founded in 1868 and is named after the former Roman Catholic Bishop of Tours, France. St. Martin Parish is unique for being the only non-contiguous parish in the entire state, as the parish is bisected by Iberia Parish due to a surveying error. The largest city in the parish is located in Breaux Bridge and the parish seat is in St. Martinville. Famous natives of the parish include Jake Delhomme, former NFL quarterback, and Ali Landry, former Miss USA pageant winner. St. Martin Parish is neighbors with Iberville Parish to the east and Lafayette Parish to the west.
Car accidents can occur at any location and at any given moment, and the causes of these accidents can range from distracted drivers using their cell phones to alcohol-impaired drivers.
