Troopers: Woman riding 4-wheeler on road dies after getting hit by car

FRANKLINTON, LA (WAFB) -

Investigators said a woman riding a four-wheeler on a Louisiana highway died after getting hit by a car Wednesday afternoon.

Louisiana State Police reported Cynamon Warden, 21, of Franklinton, died at a New Orleans hospital. The driver of the car that hit her was not charged.

According to troopers, the crash happened on LA 450 at LA 16 in Franklinton just before 1 p.m.

Tpr. Greg Marchand with Troop L said the investigation so far showed Warden was headed west on LA 450 on a Kawasaki four-wheeler and went through the intersection at LA 16 without stopping, despite a stop sign and flashing red light. He added a Nissan Maxima headed south on LA 16 was unable to stop in time and hit the ATV on the left side.

Marchand reported the impact caused the four-wheeler to flip several times and threw Warden off of it. He added she was not wearing a helmet and suffered life-threatening injuries.

Investigators said Warden was initially taken to St. Tammany Parish Hospital and then air-lifted to the Interim LSU Hospital in New Orleans, where she was later pronounced dead.

Troopers said a chemical test showed no alcohol in the car driver's system and a sample of Warden's blood was sent to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis.

The crash remains under investigation.
