A Jackson Parish teenager escaped serious injury during a single-vehicle crash on La. Hwy 486 (Campti Cutoff) on Monday afternoon according to the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office.
On Monday afternoon at approximately 1:41pm, Deputies assigned to the NPSO Patrol Division, Louisiana State Police and Natchitoches Regional Medical Center EMS responded to 911 reports of a single-vehicle crash in the 5600 block of La. Hwy 486 near Campti, La.
Deputies say the 18-year-old female operator of the 2005 Ford F-150 from Quitman, La., was traveling westbound on La. Hwy 486 when she apparently lost control of the vehicle partially leaving the roadway on the right side.
She then overcorrected, traveling across both the west and eastbound lanes leaving the roadway on the left side overturning coming to a rest in a ditch.
The operator was treated at the scene by EMS for lacerations but not transported.
Deputies say the road was wet during the time of the crash.
Troopers assigned to LSP Troop-E investigated the crash.
