A pedestrian accident has claimed the life of a 7-year-old Church Point girl.
State Police say it happened just after seven o'clock last night on US Hwy 190 east of LA Highway 752.
Police say a truck driven by 67-year-old Vincent Fruge of Eunice was traveling west on 190 and another truck driven by 22-year-old Ryan Godeaux of Eunice was traveling behind Fruge.
Troopers say Kendessa Castille was attempting to cross the westbound lanes of Hwy 190 when she was struck by both trucks.
Neither Fruge nor Godeaux were injured in the crash.
Routine toxicology samples were obtained and will be submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.
