Deputies with the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to a two-vehicle accident that occurred at the intersection of Jefferson Terrace Boulevard and J. Allen Daigre Street on April 1, 2020, at approximately 4:30 pm. The initial investigation revealed that the driver of a 2013 Nissan Altima failed to yield and entered Jefferson Terrace Blvd. from J. Allen Daigre St. into the path of a 2018 BMW heading north on Jefferson Terrace Blvd. The Nissan was struck by the BMW. Both vehicles came to rest on Jefferson Terrace Blvd. The Nissan was driven by a 17-year-old female and occupied by two female juvenile passengers, one of which sustained critical injuries. The BMW was being operated by a 48-year-old female and occupied by a 54-year-old male, both sustaining moderate injuries.

The drivers and passengers in both vehicles were transported by Acadian Air Med and Acadian Ambulance to Ochsner Lafayette General Medical Center. Alcohol is not considered a factor in the crash and it remains under investigation. Charges are pending at this time.
