One woman died and another is hospitalized after they were found in a ditch, trapped inside their overturned car for more than 24 hours, West Baton Rouge Sheriff’s investigator Lt. Ken Albarez told our media partners at The Advocate.

Brittany Guillory, 20, was found dead inside the overturned vehicle around noon Monday, Albarez said. The driver of the vehicle, also a 20-year-old woman, was transported to a hospital.

The two women left a nightclub early Sunday, and about 4:30 a.m. their vehicle veered off a curve on North Line Road in Port Allen, Albarez said. The vehicle hit multiple trees and ended up flipped in a ditch. He said officials were unable to locate the vehicle on Sunday, the Advocate reports.

Friends found the women, the newspaper reported.

The girls are originally from Eunice, said Eunice Police Chief Randy Fontenot. Eunice Police took a missing persons report from the grandmother of one of the girls, the chief said. The grandmother lives in Eunice, and couldn’t get anyone in West Baton Rouge to take a report from her, the chief said.

Someone was on the phone with the women, heard a scream, and then the line went dead, the chief said. He got a ping on their phone, and found it was in West Baton Rouge Parish, he said.

The chief said he didn’t have details because his agency wasn’t informed when the women were found. He said his officers found out and told him about it.
