An Oberlin woman is dead after a two vehicle crash in Jeff Davis Parish. Troopers say it happened on Louisiana Highway 26 near Louisiana Highway 102 in Hathaway. Troopers say a 2006 Toyota truck driven by a 16-year-old juvenile was traveling south on LA 26 when the driver attempted to make a left turn into a private parking lot. The Toyota traveled into the path of a northbound 2002 Ford Focus driven by another 16-year-old juvenile resulting in a collision.
Troopers say a passenger in the Focus, 66-year-old Louise Frank of Oberlin, was injured as a result of the crash and was transported to Jennings American Legion Hospital where she later died.
The driver of the Toyota truck received minor injuries and was cited for improper left turn and no seat belt. The driver of the Focus was wearing a seatbelt and was not injured.
Troopers say impairment is not suspected to be a factor and the crash remains under investigation.
