EAST FELICIANA PARISH (KLFY) – A Jackson, Louisiana woman was killed in a single vehicle crash Monday afternoon in East Feliciana Parish.

State Police began investigating the crash just after 2:00 p.m. on Highway 68 south of Highway 10.

Troopers say the crash occured as Amie McGraw, 32, was driving southbound on LA 68 when, for unknown reason, her vehicle ran off the right side of the road.

McGraw overcorrected to the left, lost control of her truck and struck the guardrail on the northbound side of the road.

The truck became airborne after striking the guardrail and came to rest on its roof, partially submerged in a ravine.

Troop A spokesman Bryan Lee says McGraw was properly restrained but was pronounced dead at the scene due to the fatal injuries she sustained in the crash.

A passenger in McGraw’s truck was also wearing a seatbelt and sustained moderate injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.
