A Pineville woman has died in a Rapides Parish traffic accident.
State police say Tuesday morning's accident happened on Interstate 49 south of Louisiana Highway 112.
A Honda Accord driven by 58-year-old Linda T. Jett was southbound on the interstate when Jett apparently lost control. The car left the highway, collided with several trees and caught fire.
Troopers say a passing motorist got Jett out of the car. But she was later pronounced dead at Rapides Regional Medical Center.
The crash remains under investigation.
