A 20-year-old Prairieville woman died in a single-vehicle crash Thursday on La. 44 in Ascension Parish, State Police said.

Isis Griggs was driving south on La. 44 in a 2006 Honda Accord at about 9:30 a.m. Thursday, when, for unknown reasons, she drove off the road to the left, entering a ditch and striking a concrete culvert, State Police spokesman Trooper Taylor Scrantz said. 

Griggs, who was not wearing a seat belt, suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Ascension Parish Coroner's Office, Scrantz said.

It's unknown if impairment was involved in the crash, which remains under investigation, Scrantz said. A toxicology sample has been sent to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis, he said.
