A 16-year-old juvenile escaped serious injury during a single-vehicle crash on Hwy. 494 south of Natchitoches May 9 at 6:33 pm, according to the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office.
NPSO Patrol Division deputies, State Police, and Natchitoches Regional Medical Center EMS responded to 911 reports of a single-vehicle injury crash on Hwy. 494 just north of Plantation Point.
Deputies say during the preliminary investigation, they learned a 16-year-old Natchez female juvenile operating a 1985 Chevrolet Caprice was traveling eastbound on Hwy. 494 toward Natchitoches when she apparently lost control, left the roadway on the left side, and struck a utility pole, which caused the vehicle to over-turn. It came to a rest upside down in an open field.
The operator of the vehicle was transported from the scene by EMS to Natchitoches Regional Medical Center with what is believed to be minor non-life threatening injuries.
Swepco and Suddenlink also responded to the scene to repair utilities.
Troopers assigned to LSP Troop-E Alexandria investigated the crash.
