The Louisiana State Police were called out to a two vehicle accident yesterday on the Calcasieu River Bridge heading into Moss Bluff where one person was killed and three others were injured. LSP reports that one of the people involved in the crash, a thirteen year old girl had serious injuries.

Yesterday evening, a crash involving two vehicles killed a man and injured several others.

Troopers responded to the crash around 7:00 pm, which occurred on US Hwy 171 (north bound) bridge in Calcasieu Parish.  The crash involved a 2006 Chevrolet van, driven by Leyla Austin (B/F 36 yrs) of Lake Charles and a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe, driven by Megan L. Schexnider (W/F 25 yrs) of Lake Charles.  The Chevrolet was north bound on US Hwy 171 when it became disabled due to a flat tire.  A passenger in the Chevrolet, identified as Vincent D.
