Among the victims injured in a crash this morning on Ambassador Caffery are Parish President Joey Durel's wife Lynne and wife of former DOTD secretary Kam Movassaghi, Mazie Movassaghi. We're told both are suffering from moderate injuries, but are expected to recover.
Police say the accident occurred when one vehicle crossed the centerline, hitting another vehicle head-on. The first vehicle then hit two other vehicles, bringing the total number of vehicles involved to four. It happened at Englewood and Ambassador Caffery, and all lanes of traffic were shut down for a short time this morning as a result. Police say the victims are all suffering from moderate to minor injuries. No citations have been issued; the crash is still under investigation.
Statement issued by Joey Durel: "My wife and her dear friend are doing very well following surgery. We thank our community for the prayers and support we have received. We are also thankful that they are expected to fully recover and pray for the same result for all involved."
