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.
