IBERIA PARISH - A multi-vehicle crash on Highway 90 Tuesday night killed a woman from Breaux Bridge, state police say. 

The crash happened on Highway 90 westbound at around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. State police said Cotura Roy, 52, was stopped on the highway, caught in congestion from a crash earlier in the evening. A Chevrolet Silverado behind her failed to stop and crashed into Roy's vehicle, pushing it forward into the car in front of her. 

Roy, despite wearing a seatbelt, was fatally injured in the crash. She died on the scene. 

While toxicology samples were collected from all drivers, impairment was not suspected to be a factor.
