Another lawsuit filed over dangerous intersection
PORT ALLEN - Relatives of a woman killed in a wreck at an intersection that area residents describe as hazardous have filed suit against the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development.
The lawsuit was filed in state court in Port Allen on Monday by the daughters of Ann Hope Browne, the sister of LSU football coach Les Miles.
The lawsuit claims the state knew the intersection at La. Highway 1 and Sugar Plantation Parkway was dangerous but failed to address it.
It's the second lawsuit filed against the state this month related to traffic deaths at the intersection.
A spokeswoman for the state Attorney General's Office declined to comment on the pending litigation.
Browne was killed on April 22, 2011, when her car collided with another vehicle.
