On Sunday, May 9, just after 7 p.m., Troop G Troopers began investigating a two-vehicle fatality crash on La. Hwy 154 west of Hwy 4. This crash took the life of Taylor Madison Weaver, 19, of Castor.
The initial investigation revealed that a 2009 Honda Accord, driven by Weaver, was traveling westbound on Hwy 154. At the same time, a 2015 Freightliner was traveling eastbound. For reasons still under investigation, Weaver lost control of her vehicle and crossed the centerline, which resulted in a collision with the Freightliner.
Weaver sustained fatal injuries. The driver of the Freightliner was not injured.
Although impairment is not a suspected factor, toxicology samples were taken and will be submitted for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.
In 2021, Troop G Troopers have investigated seven fatal crashes resulting in seven fatalities.
