Troopers identify 3 victims of deadly wreck
WALKER - State Police said three people died in a two-vehicle wreck New Year's Eve in Livingston Parish.
Troopers said 24-year-old Trinity Kiger crossed the center line while driving on LA 447 south of I-12 around 8:15 p.m. and hit an oncoming SUV.
Investigators said Kiger did not have his seat belt on and died from his injuries. Two passengers in the SUV, 37-year-old Shannon Chisholm and her daughter 11-year-old Hannah Chisholm, also died from their injuries.
Troopers said both Chisholms were properly restrained, though Hannah's seat belt had a lap belt only. The driver and another passenger in the vehicle, the girl's father and sister, both had moderate injuries.
Investigators said they did not suspect impairment on the SUV driver's part, but did not know whether Kiger was impaired or not. Blood samples were taken from both drivers for toxicology tests.
