Lake Charles, LA (KPLC) - KPLC 7 News is still pushing for more details on the pedestrian accident that killed a 27-year-old.

Kaleigh Fontenot was walking south on Big Lake Road, just past Miller Lane, around 11:15 p.m. on April 14 when she was struck by an SUV also traveling south.

Fontenot died two weeks after the crash on April 29.

Louisiana State Police said a toxicology sample was not taken from the driver and there are no pending charges.

KPLC reached out to state police for the initial report which is typically done within a few days following an incident. They have not yet given us that report.

More information is expected Wednesday.
