LONGVILLE, La. – On October 2, 2020, shortly before 2:30 p.m., Louisiana State Police Troop D responded to a two-vehicle fatality crash on US Hwy 171 about one mile south of South Beauregard High School. The crash claimed the life of 75-year-old Judith Raye Landry of Ragley, Louisiana.

The preliminary investigation revealed a 2008 GMC Envoy, driven by 79-year-old Donald J. Landry, was traveling south on US Hwy 171.

For reasons still under investigation, Landry struck the rear of a utility trailer being pulled by a 2001 Chevrolet pickup truck. After the impact, Landry ran off of the highway to the left and came to a stop in the median. The driver of the Chevrolet was able to come to a stop in the inside lane of travel.

Landry suffered moderate injuries and was transported to a local hospital for treatment. His passenger, Judith R. Landry, suffered fatal injuries as a result of the crash and was pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver of the Chevrolet was not injured and all three occupants were properly restrained.

Impairment is unknown as a factor at this time and toxicology reports are pending. The crash remains under investigation.
