St. Mary Parish – Shortly after 8:00 p.m. on January 10, 2021, Louisiana State Police Troop I was notified of a two-vehicle crash on Louisiana Highway 182, near Louisiana Highway 670, in St. Mary Parish. The crash claimed the life of 41-year-old Jackie Marie Brown of New Iberia.

The preliminary investigation revealed Brown was driving a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV west on LA 182. At the same time, a 2007 Cadillac SRX SUV was traveling east on LA 182. For reasons still under investigation, Brown’s SUV crossed the center line and struck the Cadillac head-on in the eastbound lane of travel.

Seatbelt usage on the part of Brown is unknown; she was pronounced dead at the scene by the St. Mary Parish Coroner’s Office. The driver of the Cadillac was not properly restrained and was transported to a local hospital in serious condition. Toxicology samples were taken from both drivers and results are pending. This crash remains under investigation.
