Abbeville Woman Dies In Vermilion Parish Crash
Louisiana State Police Spokesman Brooks David says a fatal crash on Louisiana Highway 694 near Gum Street claimed the life of 35-year-old Katie Gaspard of Abbeville.
David reports that Gaspard was driving her Camry eastbound on Highway 694 when she ran off the road, over corrected, then ended up in the westbound lane where she struck another car driving by 61-year-old Terry Prejean of Abbeville.
Gaspard was not buckled up, and she was killed. The Vermilion Parish Coroner pronounced the woman dead at the scene. Terry Prejean and his wife, 61-year-old Brenda Prejean were both wearing seatbelts. Both were moderately injured because of the crash.
Routine toxicology samples will be given to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for testing.
