Krotz Springs Resident Killed In Crash
The Louisiana State Police investigated a fatal crash on Highway 105 Thursday afternoon that took the life of a Krotz Springs man.
State Police Troop I Spokesman Trooper Thomas Gossen says that 35-year-old Vanessa Lastrapse crossed the center line of the highway, and her vehicle slammed into his head-on.
Gossen says 21-year-old Micky O'Connor of Krotz Springs did not have his seat belt buckled, and the man later died at the hospital from his injuries.
Lastrapse was wearing a seat belt, and she survived the crash with moderate injuries.
Routine toxicology tests are pending on both drivers.
The crash happened on Louisiana Highway 105 near Artall Road.
Gossen reminds drivers that everyone in a vehicle must be waring a seatbelt.
