A Zachary woman died in a Tuesday afternoon car crash on Florida Boulevard, Baton Rouge police said Wednesday morning.
The crash occurred at about 1 p.m. in the 14000 block of Florida Boulevard, just east of North Flannery Road, said Cpl. Don Coppola Jr., a police spokesman.
Mary Russell, 77, of Zachary, was attempting to cross the eastbound lanes of Florida Boulevard in a 2002 Ford Taurus when an eastbound 2003 Toyota 4Runner struck Russell’s car. Russel was taken to a hospital where she died from injuries suffered in the crash, Coppola said.
The driver of the Toyota wasn’t injured in the crash. Police do not suspect alcohol or speed led to the crash.
