State Police said an 83-year-old Zachary woman was killed in a crash when she turned her car into the path of an oncoming Dodge truck on Greenwell Springs-Port Hudson Road.
Cherry Boudreaux had come to a stop on Joor road on Oct. 16 and was turning onto Greenwell Springs-Port Hudson Road when she drove into the path of Brian Gaultier, 51, of Zachary, said Trooper 1st Class Jared Sandifer, a State Police spokesman.
Gaultier collided with Boudreaux’s Lincoln sedan, and the impact sent the two vehicles into an adjacent ditch, Sandifer said. Boudreaux’s car then crashed into a tree.
Gaultier and Boudreaux were taken to a hospital; Gaultier suffered moderate injuries while Boudreaux died later that evening, Sandifer said.
