A 19-year-old woman was killed Tuesday night in a head-on crash on Scenic Highway.
Tashadow Gray, of 1764 Swan St., died at the scene from injuries she received in the crash, which occurred around 11:30 p.m. in the 4600 block of Scenic Highway, said Cpl. Don Coppola Jr., a spokesman for the Baton Rouge Police Department.
Gray, the driver of a 1997 Acura, was headed north when she was struck head-on by a 2003 Jeep Liberty that swerved into her lane, Coppola said Wednesday morning.
The driver of the Jeep along with a passenger in Gray’s vehicle were taken to a hospital for non-life threatening injuries, he said.
Alcohol is a suspected factor in the crash, Coppola said. He did not say, though, which driver or if both were suspected of consuming alcohol.
