A Crowley woman has died following a two-vehicle crash on Thursday afternoon.

State Police say that at around 1:00 p.m. on October 15, 2020, Troopers were notified of a two-vehicle crash on LA Highway 13, south of Wilder Road, in Acadia Parish. 63-year-old Pauline Martha Faulk of Crowley was killed in that crash.
