BATON ROUGE, LA. (NBC33) —
East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Deputies responded to a traffic crash on Ridgewood at approximately 10:35 p.m. yesterday evening in which a 39-year-old woman died.
Deon Brumfield Spears, 39, was found dead inside her vehicle when responders arrived.
Spears' vehicle, a Cadillac Escalade, left the roadway while traveling east on Ridgewood from Joor. It drove across six lawns and struck the front of a residence on the 9100 block of Ridgewood.
It is unclear at this time if Spears' had a medical problem that may have caused her to lose control of the vehicle. The coroner's office will conduct an exam this week.
