Woman jailed as result of accident

A 59-year-old woman involved in an accident on December 29 has been sent to jail for her part in the crash.

According to authorities, the woman was arrested on June 20 and charged with vehicular homicide. This was after investigators obtained the toxicology report from the Louisiana State Police.

While no details about the tests results have been released, in the state of Louisiana a vehicular homicide charge comes into play when a motorist is involved in a deadly accident while under the influence or drugs or alcohol.

The accident, which occurred on Louisiana 21, killed a man who was driving a motorcycle in the area.

According to reports, the man was driving south on the road when the woman attempted to cross the highway. At that point, the motorcycle struck the side of her car, with the man being thrown to the ground.

At the time, the woman was cited with failure to yield from a private drive. However, additional details lead to her arrest for vehicular homicide.

The man who was killed in the accident was driving home from work at Our Lady of the Angels Hospital when the accident occurred.

It doesn't matter what type of vehicle you are driving, there is always a chance that another person can make a mistake on the road that puts you in a dangerous position.

In the most serious of cases, a mistake by one person can lead to the death of another. When this happens, the victim's family is left behind to decide on the next steps to take.
