RESERVE – A passenger lost their life early Thursday morning in a three vehicle crash on US 61.
Around 1 a.m. Louisiana State Police responded to a three vehicle fatal crash on US 61 southbound at LA 637 (West 10th Street) in St. John the Baptist Parish.
The crash took the life of 49-year-old Andrea Adams of Monroe, LA.
