NORWOOD – State Police say a 14-year-old is dead after a single car crash in East Feliciana Parish Thursday afternoon.

According to Louisiana State Police, the crash happened around 4 p.m. Thursday on LA 422 east of LA 19.

Investigators say 24-year-old Shannon Sessions was traveling westbound on LA 422 when she became distracted by a bug inside her vehicle and lost control. Police say the vehicle ran off the roadway down a steep embankment, overturned and struck a tree.

LSP said 14-year-old Emily Sessions was wearing a seatbelt but suffered fatal injuries. The East Feliciana Parish Coroner’s Office pronounced her dead at the scene.

Investigators do not suspect impairment to be a factor in the crash. A toxicology sample will be taken from Shannon Sessions for analysis.
