A Reeves woman is dead after a two vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 171 at North Perkins Ferry Road in Calcasieu Parish. Troopers say yesterday, a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero, driven by 76-year-old Georgia Rion of Reeves, was stopped facing east at a stop sign on North Perkins Ferry Road. Investigators say Rion then drove into the path of a 2004 Ford Mustang, driven by 27-year-old Abram Hare of DeRidder, that was traveling south on U.S. 171. The Oldsmobile was struck on the driver's side by the Mustang.
Rion was pronounced dead at a local hospital due to injuries caused by impact into the driver's side of the vehicle she was driving. Troopers say the occupants of the Mustang were all wearing seatbelts and were not injured.
Routine toxicology samples were obtained from each of the drivers and will be submitted for analysis. The crash remains under investigation.
