Calcasieu Parish –Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop D responded to a single-vehicle crash on US Hwy 90 east of PPG Drive in Calcasieu Parish on April 20, 2021, at approximately 11:15 p.m. The crash claimed the life of 22-year-old Cassie Nicole Brockman of Lake Charles.

The preliminary investigation revealed a 2008 Toyota Camry, driven by Brockman, was traveling west on I-10 prior to exiting onto US 90. For unknown reasons, the Toyota ran off the right side of the roadway and onto a steep embankment. After traveling onto the embankment, the Toyota rolled over several times before coming to rest on its roof on the roadway.

Brockman was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and was partially ejected from the vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene. There were no other occupants in the vehicle.

A toxicology sample was obtained and will be submitted for analysis. The crash remains under investigation.
