LAFAYETTE – Lafayette police have identified the driver of one of the vehicles involved in a fatal crash on Johnston Street Saturday night.

Police say 26-year-old Payton Mitchell was driving one of the vehicles at the time of the crash.

Fifty-seven-year-old Christopher Mouledous died in the crash, and three other people were transported to a local hospital.

Police say Mitchell will be booked with an OWI once she’s released from the hospital.

Details of the crash will not be released at this time due to “court purposes,” according to a spokeswoman with the police department.
