Louisiana Avenue Crash Kills 1 in Lafayette
Lafayette Police responded to the scene of a vehicle crash yesterday evening about 6 pm on Louisiana Avenue near Webb Street. Upon arrival, officers noted that two vehicles were involved in the incident and there were injuries at the scene.
Lafayette Police say apparently one of the vehicles veered into the oncoming traffic and struck another vehicle head-on. The result of that crash left one person, reportedly a female, deceased. It also left three others injured.
Pending notification of next of kin the name of the deceased has not been released. Police are still trying to piece together what happened at the scene. They do believe a vehicle heading southbound on Louisiana Avenue crossed the center line into oncoming traffic.
According to KATC, three people were being treated for injuries at the scene. Those individuals were transported to a local hospital where their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
Lafayette Police are in the process of finalizing their investigation into the crash. No further details were given but we do expect an update on the investigation later today.
