Bogalusa–At approximately 10:50 PM on Tuesday, November 13, 2018, Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop L responded to a single vehicle fatal crash on LA 10 approximately six miles east of LA 62 in Washington Parish. The crash has claimed the life of 19-year-old Cristal Camacho of Bogalusa.
The initial on-scene investigation led Troopers to determine that the crash occurred as Camacho was driving a 2008 Dodge Avenger eastbound on LA 10. As the vehicle entered a left-hand curve, it exited the right side of the roadway and crashed into a pine tree.
Despite being properly restrained, Camacho sustained fatal injuries in the crash. She was pronounced deceased on-scene by the Washington Parish Coroner’s Office. Impairment is not suspected to be a contributing factor in this crash. As part of the on-going investigation, blood samples were collected and will be sent to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis.
