Louisiana State Police say that a rollover crash in Beauregard Parish claimed the life of a passenger. It happened shortly before 4:00 Sunday morning on U.S. Highway 171, 8 miles southeast of DeRidder.
Troopers say 21-year-old LaMya R. Scott was driving a 2011 Dodge pickup truck northbound when the truck went off the highway twice and then rolled over in the center median. A passenger, Chaniya Piper, 21, of DeRidder, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Meanwhile, Scott underwent treatment in a Lake Charles hospital, and two other passengers were said to have only minor injuries.
Troopers noted that all four occupants of the vehicle were properly restrained.
