Deadly Crash in Natchitoches Parish

NATCHITOCHES PARISH, La. (KALB News Channel 5) A crash involving two vehicles killed a young woman from Natchitoches, LA on Monday.

Troopers responded to the crash around 3:30 p.m., which occurred on LA Hwy 3191 near LA Hwy 1.  The crash involved a 2006 Ford Taurus, driven by 20-year-old Kimberly R. Knight and a 2008 GMC Chipper Truck, driven by Zachary J. Wyatt (W/M 21 yrs) of Robeline, LA. 

Troopers say the Ford was southbound on LA Hwy 3191 when Knight lost control and crossed the centerline.  This action placed Knight's vehicle in the northbound lane, resulting in the Ford colliding with the northbound GMC.
