A Friday crash in Calcasieu seriously injured an unrestrained passenger and resulted in an arrest, according to Louisiana State Police, Troop D.

Troopers said at 11:33 a.m. Friday, troopers responded to a single-vehicle crash on La. 3059, one mile east of U.S. 171.

Troopers said the preliminary investigation revealed that a 2007 Mitsubishi was traveling west on La. 3059 when the driver, 29-year-old Lindsey Anderson of Jennings, lost control of the vehicle in a curve causing the vehicle to strike a driveway and become airborne before crashing into a ditch.

Anderson was not wearing a seatbelt and was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries, according to troopers.

The passenger in the vehicle, 18-year-old Lexy Shaylynn Fontenot of Lake Charles, was also not wearing a seatbelt and was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries, troopers said.

Anderson was charged with DWI, vehicular negligent injuring, careless operation and failure to wear a seatbelt. She was booked into the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center.
