Teen killed in Bienville Parish crash


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.
