LOCAL TEEN LOSES HER LIFE IN OVERNIGHT CRASH

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.
