Published September 28, 2019

From Louisiana State Police Troop D – On September 27, 2019, shortly after 9:00 p.m., Louisiana State Police Troop D responded to a two-vehicle fatal crash on LA Hwy 109 near Wimberly Drive in Calcasieu Parish. The crash claimed the life of 65-year-old Olivia W. Wilson of Orange, TX.

The initial investigation revealed a 2005 Chevrolet SUV was traveling north on LA Hwy 109 when the driver failed to yield while turning left into a private drive. The driver of the Chevrolet turned into the path of a southbound 2010 Nissan Versa resulting in a collision.

Wilson, who was the front seat passenger in the Nissan, was restrained at the time of the crash. Wilson suffered moderate injuries and was transported to a Sulphur area hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries. Both drivers and the other occupant of the Nissan were all restrained at the time of the crash. Impairment is unknown, but toxicology samples were taken from both drivers for analysis. This crash remains under investigation. There is no further information available at this time.

Louisiana State Troopers would like to take this opportunity to remind motorists to always make good decisions while operating motor vehicles. Never drive while impaired, fatigued, or distracted, always ensure every occupant is properly restrained, and follow all traffic laws. While not all crashes are survivable, taking simple precautions such as these can often mean the difference between life and death.
