Baton Rouge police say a 43-year-old woman was killed when she lost control of her SUV on Choctaw Drive and crashed early Saturday morning.
Angela Ayers, 12329 Lorna Ave., was heading west on South Choctaw Drive near North Flannery Road just after midnight Saturday when her 2005 Chrysler Pacifica veered and slammed into a utility pole, said Cpl. L’Jean McKneely, a Baton Rouge police spokesman.
Ayers, who was wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Alcohol is not thought to be a factor in the crash, McKneely said.
