Woman dies while trying to help driver

A 44-year-old Lafayette woman who was trying to help a distressed motorist Friday morning was run over by a tractor-trailer and killed on Interstate 10 near Ocean Springs, Mississippi, the Associated Press said Sunday.

Wendy Snelling and her family had pulled over to help the driver while heading east on I-10, Jackson County Deputy Coroner Jason Moody told the Associated Press.

But when she got out of her car, she was struck by a truck that was transporting at least eight cars, The Associated Press said.

Moody called the incident a “total accidental death.”

Driver crashes into three parked cars

A driver heading north on Ambassador Caffery Parkway lost control of a Kia Optima and crashed into three parked cars shortly after 10:30 p.m. Friday, according to KATC.

The driver was taken to a hospital and was listed in stable condition.

It is not clear why the 2006 Kia Optima suddenly veered off the road in the 3900 block of Ambassador Caffery Parkway, but the driver was cited for careless operation and failing to show a valid driver’s license, Lafayette Police said.
