Family and friends are mourning the loss of a local teen who died in an overnight crash.  According to Louisiana State Police, shortly after 9:00 pm on May 1, 2017, Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop I began investigating a single vehicle fatal crash on LA Hwy 363 near the St. Landry Parish / Evangeline Parish line. The crash took the life of 16-year-old Adrian N. Johnson of Washington, LA.

 

The initial investigation by State Police revealed that the crash occurred as Johnson was traveling southbound on LA Hwy 363 in a 2006 Kia Spectra. As Johnson was driving southbound, her Kia struck a cow which was in the southbound lane of travel. After striking the cow, the Kia traveled across the northbound lane into a ditch where it then struck a culvert.

 

Johnson was unrestrained at the time of the crash and suffered fatal injuries. She was pronounced deceased on scene by the St. Landry Parish Coroner’s Office. Impairment is not suspected to have been a factor in the crash, but per standard procedure a toxicology sample will be submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis.

 

Adrian was loved by many and enjoyed more than anything hanging out with her friends and riding horses.  Her mother, Carie Johnson, spoke with me after the accident and said that Adrian always loved making people smile.  We will update you on funeral arrangements as they become available.

During the month of October, KVPI worked with Faith House to express to you the importance of Domestic Violence Awareness and we are now asking for your help for those in our community who are in need of assistance due to Domestic Violence in their relationship.  The Staff at Ville Platte Broadcasting will be helping to provide items for families who not only need them at Christmas time, but all year long.  There are times when someone has to walk or run away from everything they know and have in order to stay safe.   If you are able to, please join us in our efforts by dropping off donations of unopened shampoo & conditioner, razors, feminine products, perfume, bath products, toilet paper, deodorant, liquid laundry detergent, toys for boys & girls ages 5 -10, and gift cards in any denomination. 

 

Most of us are very fortunate to wake up in the morning and feel safe.  It is unfortunate that there are those who do not.  We would like to give them one less thing to worry about.  Please get your friends or your staff together and drop off donations at KVPI located at 809 W. LaSalle in Ville Platte.  We thank you very much.
