Iberia Parish – At approximately 2:30 p.m. on October 7, 2020, Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop I were notified of a two-vehicle injury crash on LA Highway 677 near Little Guy Lane in Iberia Parish. The crash ultimately took the life of 55-year-old Wendy Hebert Pete of New Iberia.
The initial investigation by State Police revealed that the crash occurred as Pete was driving a 2006 Ford Freestar van north on LA Hwy 677. At the same time, a 2016 Freightliner 18-wheeler Cane Hauler was traveling north at a slower rate of speed. Pete attempted to pass the 18-wheeler, then quickly steered back into the northbound lane as another vehicle was approaching in the southbound lane. Upon doing so, Pete’s van struck the tractor-trailer.
Pete was unrestrained at the time of the crash and was transported to a local hospital with moderate injuries. Later in the evening, Pete succumbed to injuries received in the crash. The 18-wheeler driver was properly restrained and was not injured. Toxicology results are pending and this crash remains under investigation.
