Passenger dies in rear-end crash

BAYOU VISTA, LA (WAFB) -

A 44-year-old woman died when the car she was riding in was rear-ended by a truck early Friday morning.

Louisiana State Police said Laura Walker of New Iberia was pronounced dead at the scene by the St. Mary Parish coroner.

The crash happened on US 90 East at Southeast Boulevard in Bayou Vista just before 1 a.m. Troopers said a 2012 Dodge Ram slammed into the back of a 2004 Honda Accord stopped at the intersection.

Brandon Smith, 22, of New Iberia was driving the Accord. He and two of his passengers, who were also from New Iberia, were hurt in the accident. Smith, William Walker, 27, and Willamae Collins, 44, were all taken to the hospital with moderate injuries.

The driver of the pickup was not injured. He has not been charged in the crash. Investigators said they don't yet know if impairment was a factor in the crash, so blood samples were taken and submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis.

The crash remains under investigation.
