2-vehicle crash in Louisiana kills 1, injures 4

On Behalf of | Nov 27, 2014 | Car Accidents |

Authorities in Louisiana have reported that a 33-year-old woman has died as a result of injuries she suffered on Nov. 24 in a two-car collision. Three passengers in the woman’s car and a passenger in the second car were also hurt. The car accident took place near the Sun town limits at approximately 5:30 p.m.

According to the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office, the woman’s Dodge Stratus was proceeding southbound on Louisiana Highway 21 when it struck the rear of a Chevrolet Corvette. The Chevrolet had been slowing down to enter a parking lot at the time of the collision. Both of the vehicles involved came to a rest in the median.

Paramedics soon arrived at the scene, and the Mississippi resident behind the wheel of the Dodge was transported by ambulance to a medical facility in Lacombe for treatment along with a minor who had been a passenger in the car. The hospital reported later that the woman had died as a result of her injuries. A 30-year-old passenger in the Dodge was seriously injured in the crash, and a helicopter was called in to transport her to a medical center in Hammond. Another minor in the Dodge was transported to the Lakeview Regional Medical Center in Covington by paramedics along with a 39-year-old woman who had been a passenger in the Chevrolet. There were no immediate reports regarding the severity of the injuries suffered in the accident.

Automobile accident victims could suffer injuries that are catastrophic in nature, and some people may never fully recover. An individual hurt in a crash may pursue civil remedies if his or her injuries were caused by a negligent driver. If the party responsible for causing the crash is killed, a personal injury attorney could seek damages from his or her estate.
