EAST FELICIANA PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

A woman from Mississippi was killed in a wreck Wednesday afternoon in East Feliciana Parish.

Officials with Louisiana State Police say the wreck happened on May 23 around 2 p.m. on LA 964 north of LA 68 in East Feliciana Parish. The wreck claimed the life of Connie Travis, 46, of Liberty, Mississippi.

The initial investigation showed the wreck happened as Travis was driving south on LA 964 in a 2017 Honda Civic, when for reasons still under investigation, she crossed the center line and ran off the left side of the road into a ditch. The vehicle hit an embankment and flipped multiple times.

Officials say Travis was not wearing her seat belt and suffered fatal injuries as a result. She was pronounced dead on the scene by the East Feliciana Parish Coroner's Office. Impairment is not suspected as a factor in this wreck, but a toxicology sample was taken from Travis nonetheless.
