One person was killed Friday morning after a wreck involving two vehicles at the intersection of Esplanade and North Rampart Street. 

The crash occurred about 6:50 a.m., police said. The intersection is near the edges of the Marigny, 7th Ward and French Quarter. 

A woman driving a 2002 GMC Envoy was pronounced dead on the scene. A 25-year-old man driving a 2001 Buick LeSabre was taken to a nearby hospital in stable condition. 

Traffic headed eastbound at N. Rampart Street was closed at Esplanade Avenue. Westbound lanes were open as of 8 a.m., police said. 

• A half-dozen robberies were reported between Thursday night and Friday morning, New Orleans police said.

About 8:55 p.m. in the 2400 block of Esplanade Avenue on the edge of the 7th Ward, two women – ages 31 and 33 – were robbed at gunpoint by a man who approached them on a bicycle, police said.

An hour later in the 1100 block of North Robertson Street on the edge of Treme, a 17-year-old man snatched a purse from a 48-year-old woman after a conversation with her, police said.

About 1:45 a.m. in the 300 block of Camp Street in the Central Business District, a man who appeared to be between 40 and 50 years old walked into a hotel with his hands in his pockets as if he had a gun and successfully demanded cash from a front desk clerk, police said.

About 3:30 a.m. in the 100 block of Royal Street in the French Quarter, a 69-year-old man was robbed of his wallet by three women he invited up to his hotel room, police said. The man said he pointed a gun at one of the women, but she knocked the gun out of his hand, police said.

About 4:50 a.m. in the 700 block of Iberville Street in the French Quarter, a 44-year-old man spent time went to an automated teller machine to pay three women for spending time with him, police said. The man was pepper-sprayed and robbed of cash at the ATM by the women, police said. It wasn’t clear if that robbery was related to the one a little more than an hour earlier.

About 5:55 a.m. in the 7200 block of Yorktown Drive in New Orleans East, a 24-year-old woman walking to the bus stop was robbed of her belonging by a man who approached her from behind and implied he had a gun, police said.

• A federal grand jury in New Orleans on Friday indicted Darryl Henry, 27, on two charges of attempting to rob a Walmart and Winn-Dixie in Algiers at gunpoint on Aug. 24, as well as one charge of robbing a Walmart in Harvey of nearly $7,000 on the same day, prosecutors said. Henry had been arrested late last month, in part because surveillance video implicated him. The feds are leading the case as the stores involved are considered interstate merchants, among other reasons.
