LIVINGSTON PARISH, LA (WAFB) - Just after 5 p.m. on September 16, Louisiana State Police troopers began investigating a single vehicle wreck that occurred on LA 22 east of LA 1039 in Livingston Parish. Megan Threeton, 17, of Springfield, LA died as a result of the wreck.
The initial investigation revealed that the wreck occurred as Threeton was traveling westbound on LA 22 in a 2005 Ford Expedition. For unknown reasons, Threeton failed to negotiate a right hand curve and ran off the side of the road. Her vehicle came to a halt after striking a tree on the driver's side.
Threeton was wearing her seat belt at the time of the wreck, but sustained severe injuries nonetheless. She was transported to North Oaks Hospital, where she later died. Impairment is not suspected as a cause in this wreck, but a toxicology sample will be taken from Threeton for analysis.
