Car Accidents

Breaux Bridge (French: le Pont-Breaux😉 a small city in St. Martin Parish, Louisiana, United States. The population is 8,274 as of the 2013 census. It is part of the Lafayette Metropolitan Statistical Area.

This community is called the “Crawfish Capital of the World”, a designation obtained by former Speaker of the Louisiana House of Representatives Robert J. “Bob” Angelle. It is also known for its unusual listing of nicknames in its telephone directory.

Acadian pioneer Firmin Breaux arrived as a single person with Joseph Broussard dit Beausoleil in early 1765 – probably with the family of Michel Trahan.

In 1799, Breaux built a footbridge across the Bayou Teche to help ease the passage for his family and neighbors. This first bridge was a suspension footbridge, likely made of rope and small planks. It was stabilized by being tied to small pilings located at each end of the bridge, as well as to a pair of huge live oak trees on both sides of the bayou. When traveling directions were given, residents would often instruct people to “go to Breaux’s bridge…”, which eventually was adopted as the city’s name.
