Plaquemine woman killed in Iberville Parish crash

IBERVILLE PARISH, LA (WAFB) - A Plaquemine woman died Thursday morning just after 5 a.m. during a single vehicle crash.

The crash happened on LA Hwy 75, south of LA Hwy 3066 in Iberville Parish.

According to Louisiana State Troopers, 40-year-old Tonia W. Abshire was driving southbound on LA Hwy 75 when, for unknown reasons, crossed the centerline and ran off the roadway to the left. The vehicle went into the ditch, overturned and hit a tree.

Troopers say Abshire was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle.

Impairment is not suspected; however, Troopers have submitted a toxicology sample from Abshire to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis. Excessive speed is considered to be a factor in the crash.
