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.

Police say Knight was wearing her seatbelt, but was pronounced dead.

Wyatt was not wearing his seatbelt, but was not injured.  There were four passengers in Wyatt's vehicle, identified as 32-year-old Ricky A. Simmons of Natchitoches, 21-year-old Ricky Allen Jr. of Jonesboro, LA, 22-year-old Chris Rivet of Natchitoches, and 19-year-old Walter Williams of Jonesboro.

Simmons received moderate injuries and Allen Jr. received minor injuries.  Both were transported to Natchitoches Regional Hospital.  Rivet and Williams were not injured.  All of Wyatt's passengers were properly restrained.

Routine toxicology tests are pending.  The crash remains under investigation.
