FRANKLINTON, LA (WAFB) -

Around 11 a.m. on Saturday, August 6, Louisiana State Police troopers were dispatched to a three vehicle crash on LA 10 near Franklinton that claimed the life of a teenager.

Troopers were able to determine the crash occurred as Folsom resident, Earniesha Lott, 25, was driving a 2010 Chevrolet Malibu eastbound on LA 10 west of LA 439 when she attempted to pass an eastbound 2006 Jeep Liberty, driven by Franklinton resident, Carla Jordan, 42, on the crest of a hill in a no-passing zone. 

As Lott entered the westbound lane, her vehicle crashed into a westbound 2000 GMC Yukon, driven by Steven Hodges, 38, of Bogalusa. Lott's sister, Dericka Wallace, 14, was a passenger in the vehicle. She was not restrained at the time of the crash. 

Wallace was severely injured and pronounced dead at the scene by the Washington Parish Coroner's Office. Two other juvenile passengers who were in Lott's vehicle were properly restrained and were uninjured.

Hodges and Jordan were also both properly restrained and sustained minor injuries, along with two other juvenile passengers in Jordan's vehicle.

Impairment is not suspected in this incident. All three drivers voluntarily submitted breath samples, which showed no trace amounts of alcohol. Lott was arrested and booked into the Washington Parish Jail for negligent homicide, passing in a no-passing zone, and driving with a suspended license. Lott was also booked for an outstanding warrant with the Kenner Police Department for theft under $500. 

The crash is still under investigation.
