Police will be closing Surrey Street between Fisher Road and River Road while crews take measurements regarding the recent fatality investigation, a press release from Lafayette Police says.

The closure will begin at 9:00 am this morning and should not take no more than an hour to complete. Motorist should avoid this area if at all possible.

A Lafayette woman died Monday after her vehicle collided head-on with a semitractor-trailer truck on Surrey Street.

Yvette M. Ford, 51, was driving a 2004 GMC Yukon north on the road when she crashed head-on with the southbound truck, Lafayette Police said. Debris from the wreck struck a 2007 Toyota Highlander also traveling near the 1500 block of Surrey Street.
