Memorial fund set up for woman who died in crash

ASCENSION PARISH, LA (WAFB) - The family of a woman killed in a single-car crash last weekend is asking for help with funeral expenses.

Those wishing to help can donate to the Taselin Whitney Memorial Fund at any Capital One Bank.

Whitney, 36, died in a crash on I-10 in Ascension Parish, just two miles east of the Highland Road exit.

According to Louisiana State Police, she was driving on I-10 East when her vehicle drifted off the road and she overcorrected.

Troopers reported the vehicle crossed both eastbound lanes and went off the road on the opposite side, hitting a guardrail at the Bluff Road overpass.

Reports indicate the vehicle then continued up an embankment and hit a concrete girder of the underside of the overpass.
