Arrest – Eight Vehicles involved in Catastrophic Crash

Shortly before 7:30 p.m. on May 20, 2019 the Natchitoches Police Department responded to a crash scene involving multiple vehicles. The crash, located at Keyser Avenue and East Fifth Street, required officers to close the intersection down for several hours while they conducted their investigation.

Brandy Wiley, black female, 38, of the city was charged with negligent injuring, reckless operation, and improper lane use and disobey red light. Wiley was booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center where she awaits bond.

Also involved was Brittany Payne, 29, of Natchez, a 16 year old juvenile of the city, who sustained moderate injuries, Ellen Walker, 60, of Natchez who also received moderate injuries. Additionally four parked vehicles were also struck during this devastating event.

Tragically a 3 year old child, who was an occupant of one of the vehicles, was critically injured in this crash. The child was airlifted from NRMC to another medical facility.

  1. It is not uncommon to see cars going 50 on Jefferson Street and 60 plus on Keyser. I agree NPD needs to give more tickets for speeding and also loud exhaust. Does the noise restrictions in the historic district not apply to vehicles?

    • Apparently not, but then the NPD doesn’t enforce the law, which is not only a city ordinance, but a state law, anywhere in the city. To me they are complicit with the law breakers. Definitely time for a new police chief and to get that will require getting a new mayor.
