FRENCH SETTLEMENT - Police said a teen died after being hit by multiple cars while crossing a Livingston Parish highway last night.

The chief said both drivers stopped at the scene, and the teen was pronounced dead at 8:26 p.m.
Police said the victim was wearing dark clothing when she crossed the road. They headed back out to the scene Thursday to continue their investigation.
