Roanoke – Louisiana State Police Troop D responded to a two-vehicle fatal crash at the intersection of LA Hwy 395 and Pecan Orchard Road in Jefferson Davis Parish on October 5, 2020, shortly before 3:00 p.m. The crash claimed the life of 60-year-old Thelma Breaux Huval of Lake Charles.

The preliminary investigation revealed a 2010 GMC Terrain, was traveling north on LA 395. The driver of the GMC crossed the centerline, entered the opposing lane of travel, and began to pass a northbound vehicle. At the same time, a 2002 Toyota Tacoma ahead of the northbound vehicle was making a left turn onto Pecan Orchard Road. The GMC struck the Toyota on the driver’s side in the southbound lane of travel. The impact caused both vehicles to travel off the left side of the roadway and come to rest in a ditch.
Huval was properly restrained at the time of the crash and was transported to an area hospital where she ultimately succumbed to her injuries. The driver of the GMC sustained minor injuries and was transported to an area hospital.
Impairment is unknown as a factor at this time and toxicology reports are pending. The crash remains under investigation.
