MOREHOUSE PARISH, La. (KNOE 8 News) - On July 9, 2015, just after 5:30 p.m., Troopers assigned to Louisiana State Police Troop F responded to a single-vehicle fatality crash on US Highway 425 approximately a mile south LA 3051 in Morehouse Parish that claimed the life of a Rayville woman.

The preliminary investigation revealed a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe, driven by 54-year-old Jeanna Davis of Rayville, LA was traveling south on US 425. Davis failed to negotiate a curve and ran off the road. After traveling off the road, the vehicle struck a culvert and began to rollover. Davis, who was unrestrained, was partially ejected and pronounced dead at the scene by the Morehouse Parish Coroner’s Office

Impairment at this time is unknown. A toxicology sample was obtained and will be submitted for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.

Louisiana law requires vehicle occupants to be restrained in all seating positions, day and night. Wearing a seat belt on every trip, whether it’s short or long, is the most effective thing motorists can do to protect themselves in the event of a crash. Motorists are encouraged to always make the smart choice and to wear their seatbelt.

In 2015, Troop F has investigated 23 fatal crashes resulting in 25 deaths.
