Breaux Bridge woman ID’d as crash victim

BREAUX BRIDGE — State Police identified the woman who died Sunday in a crash on La. 352 as Lilly M. Boyd, 54, of Breaux Bridge.

Police said Boyd was traveling west on La. 352 in St. Martin Parish about 9 p.m. when a pickup truck driven by Jeremy Melancon, 39, also of Breaux Bridge, rear-ended her car.

Boyd’s car veered off the road and flipped into a ditch, police said. She was not wearing a seat belt and was pronounced dead at the scene. Melancon, who was wearing his seat belt, sustained minor injuries.

Although alcohol is not suspected to be a factor in the crash, a toxicology sample was taken from Melancon for analysis, police said.
