Unrestrained woman dies in fatal crash in Allen Parish

The following is a Press Release from the Louisiana State Police:

On May 17, 2012, at 7:50 a.m., troopers assigned to Louisiana State Police Troop D responded to a single vehicle crash on Louisiana Highway 112 north of the community of Elizabeth in Allen Parish that claimed the life of a woman from Glenmora.

Investigating troopers report that a 2002 Mazda Protégé driven by 47-year-old Dorothy Fee of Glenmora was traveling south on LA 112 when, for unknown reasons, the vehicle she was driving crossed the center line and ran off the road.  Fee's vehicle than traveled into a ditch on the opposite side of the road and struck a driveway.  Fee, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Allen Parish Coroner's Office.

A toxicology sample was obtained from the driver and will be submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis.  The crash remains under investigation.

The majority of fatal and serious injury crashes involve occupants who are not wearing seat belts.  Troopers would like to remind motorists of the importance of being properly restrained at all times in every seating position in the vehicle.  

During a crash, occupants in vehicles are safest when properly restrained.  The safest place during a vehicle crash is usually inside the vehicle.  Seatbelts help prevent vehicle occupants from being ejected.  

The nationwide seatbelt enforcement campaign "Click it or Ticket" begins next week.  Troop D will have additional troopers assigned to area roadways conducting seatbelt enforcement.  Buckle up Louisiana.  Every trip.  Every time.
