DESOTO PARISH, La. (KSLA) - A 30-year-old woman is dead after a two-vehicle crash that happened at around 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 2.

The incident occurred on I-49, north of La Hwy 3276.

Foster was wearing a seatbelt, but suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead on the scene. The driver of the Kenworth wasn’t injured.

Officials don’t suspect impairment to be a factor in the crash, but routine toxicology samples were taken for analysis. The crash remains under investigation.
