Vehicle crashes on US-71 north of Campti


Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Deputies, Louisiana State Police, Natchitoches Regional Medical Center EMS and Natchitoches Parish Fire District #9 responded to a single-vehicle injury crash on US-71 north of Campti reported Monday, Jan. 2, at 12:06 p.m., according to the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say the 2013 Ford Fiesta was traveling southbound on US-71 north of Campti, on the wet roadway, when the operator apparently lost control of the vehicle leaving the roadway on the right side, striking a culvert causing the vehicle to overturn.

The driver and two passengers who were reportedly trapped in the vehicle were able to free themselves from the wreckage before NFD# 9 arrived on scene with extrication equipment.

All three occupants were transported by EMS to Natchitoches Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

The crash is being investigated by TFC D. Morvant assigned to LSP Troop-E Alexandria.
