St. Landry Parish, La — Troopers with Louisiana State Police Troop I learned that an 11-year-old girl from Leonville died from injuries she sustained in a Saturday crash.
According to investigating Troopers, on June 15, 2013, at 8:22 p.m., a 16-year-old male was driving a 2004 GMC Sierra west on US Highway 190 west of Port Barre. A 1998 Mercury Sable, driven by 44-year-old Debra Trahan of Leonville, was traveling in front of the 16-year-old. Trahan had slowed down in preparation of making a left turn. As she was slowing, her vehicle was struck from behind by the 16-year-old.
Trahan was restrained and sustained no injuries. An 11-year-old passenger in her vehicle, Anna Trahan of Leonville, was also restrained and was taken to a local hospital in critical condition. A third juvenile occupant in Trahan’s vehicle was also restrained and was taken to a local hospital with severe injuries. The 16-year-old was restrained and not injured in the crash.
Late yesterday afternoon, Troopers were notified that Anna Trahan had succumbed to her injuries.
Impairment is not suspected to be a factor in this crash. This crash remains under investigation.
