WALKER - Police say a woman was killed and her husband critically injured in a crash involving three vehicles and two 18-wheelers on Interstate 12 in Walker.

The deadly crash happened at 11:30 p.m. Thursday.

Police Capt. John Sharp said it appears that an 18-wheeler changed lanes to avoid a pickup towing a disabled car that pulled from the road shoulder into the lane of travel.

While changing lanes, the 18 wheeler hit a car, sending it into the path of a second 18 wheeler.

Police say Hayle Barr died at the scene of the crash. Her husband, Matthew Barr, was taken to a Baton Rouge hospital where he is listed in critical condition.

Sharp said the man and his daughter in the pickup and car being towed suffered minor injuries.
