MOSS BLUFF, La. – Officials say a state trooper died when his patrol car was hit by another car.

The accident happened Tuesday night on U.S. Highway 171 north of Lake Charles.

Investigators say Trooper Duane Dalton died when his car was hit broadside by a car driven by 50-year-old Debra Bourque of Lake Charles.

After impact, Dalton’s unit rotated clockwise, entered a ditch and struck a culvert on the driver’s side.

Dalton was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Troopers say Bourque was not injured.

Charges are pending the outcome of the continuing investigation.

The 39-year-old Dalton began his career with the Louisiana State Police on December 3, 1995.

    The funeral ceremony was a very moving tribute. Troopers from all over our state ... and representatives from state and federal agencies from all over the country sacrificed the ease and comfort of their daily lives to honor our fallen brother. It is clear that Trooper Dalton is loved and will be missed by many. As difficult as the day was, we were encouraged to "stand the line."
