BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) Bossier City police are investigating a fatal car crash that killed a 50-year-old woman.
Police say the woman was driving eastbound on the Industrial Drive Extension Wednesday night when the vehicle crashed through a barricade where road comes to a dead end. The car then rolled over several times in a grassy area before coming to rest along a drainage ditch that runs parallel to I-20 south of the eastbound lanes.
Police say the woman was not wearing a seat belt and had to be removed from the car by Bossier City Fire Department personnel. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police suspect alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. The woman's name is not being released pending notification of next of kin.
