LIVINGSTON PARISH - A 27-year-old Walker woman was killed in a two-vehicle crash in Livingston Parish Sunday morning.

According to Louisiana State Police, the crash occurred around 9:00 a.m. on LA 449 north of LA 63.

The crash claimed the life of 27-year-old Hannah C. Watts of Walker, La.

Through the initial investigation, State Police determined that the crash occurred as Watts was driving a 2004 Toyota Corolla southbound on LA 449. At the same time, a 71-year-old Walker man was driving a 2017 GMC pickup truck northbound on LA 449.

For unknown reasons, Watts entered a curve and her Toyota crossed the centerline into the northbound lane. As a result, Watts' vehicle struck the GMC, exited the roadway and struck a tree.

Watts was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash and sustained fatal injuries as a result, according to State Police. The other driver was wearing a seatbelt and suffered only minor injuries.

Impairment is not suspected to be a factor in this crash for either driver. A toxicology sample was taken from Watts to be analyzed by the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab.
