On Sunday morning February 19 at approximately 9:52am, Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Deputies, Louisiana State Police, Natchitoches Regional Medical Center EMS, and NPFD# 1 responded to 911 reports of an one-vehicle injury crash on La. Hwy 1 north of Derry, La.
Deputies say the unidentified sixteen-year-old female operator of a 2015 Chrysler 200C from Provencal, La., was traveling southbound on La. Hwy 1 north of Derry when she apparently lost control of the vehicle partially leaving the roadway on the right side.
She then overcorrected, crossing both the north and southbound lanes leaving the roadway on the left side traveling down an embankment causing the vehicle to overturn at least three times.

The driver was transported from the scene by EMS to Natchitoches Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, was treated and has been released.

The driver was reportedly wearing a seat belt.

The crash was investigated by Troopers assigned to LSP Troop-E Alexandria.
