Woman dies from stabbing, not car crash
BATON ROUGE - A 36-year-old woman stabbed in a fight Sunday morning died from those stab wounds and not from the crash that threw her from the vehicle, police said.
Tomica Jacobs got stabbed in the groin during a fight in the 4100 block of Levera St.
Someone tried to drive her to a hospital, but lost control of the 1996 Ford Explorer and flipped the vehicle. Jacobs, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the Explorer and wound up under it.
Police said alcohol and drugs are believed to be factors in the crash, which is still under investigation. No information about the driver was released.
