DeRidder –Louisiana State Police Troop D responded to a single-vehicle crash on LA Hwy 26 about ¾ of a mile east of US Hwy 171 in Beauregard Parish on July 5, 2021, shortly before 6:00 p.m. The crash claimed the life of 64-year-old Denise D. Alloway of DeRidder.

The preliminary investigation revealed a 1999 Dodge Ram pickup truck, driven by Alloway, was traveling east on LA Hwy 26. For unknown reasons, the Dodge ran off the left side of the roadway and down an embankment of a ditch. The pickup truck traveled through the ditch, struck a tree, and rolled over onto its side.

Alloway was not properly restrained at the time of the crash and sustained serious injuries. She was transported to an Alexandria area hospital by Acadian Air Med where she succumbed to her injuries. A toxicology sample was obtained from Alloway and submitted for analysis. The crash remains under investigation.
