Unrestrained Driver Killed in Single-Vehicle Madison Parish Crash

Delta - On Wednesday, June 12, 2024, shortly after 9:00 a.m., Troopers with Louisiana State Police Troop F began investigating a single-vehicle fatal crash on LA 3218 just east of US 80.The crash claimed the life of 35-year-old Summer Rodgers of Greenville, Mississippi.

The initial investigation revealed that a 2007 Kia Amanti, driven by Rodgers, was traveling west on LA 3218. For reasons still under investigation, the Kia traveled off the right side of the road and overturned.

Rodgers, who was unrestrained, was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene. Routine toxicology samples were collected and will be submitted for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.

Louisiana State Police would like to remind motorists to slow down, buckle up, and lessen the distractions in the vehicle. Crash forces do not care who you are or what you drive. The faster you drive, the greater the risk of serious injury or death; not wearing a seat belt dramatically increases that risk.

In 2024, Troop F has investigated 20 fatal crashes, resulting in 21 deaths.
