BONNET CARRE SPILLWAY - A woman died in the hospital after crashing into a deputy's patrol car at the scene of an earlier crash.

Louisiana State Police said a St. John the Baptist Parish deputy turned their emergency lights on and pulled into the left lane on the Bonnet Carre Spillway bridge around 3:30 a.m. Sunday to block traffic from a previous crash.

Troopers said 23-year-old Alexis Jones crashed into the deputy's vehicle, pushing the SUV into the previously wrecked car.

Jones and a passenger were taken to a hospital where Jones later died.

The deputy and other driver were standing outside of their vehicles and were unharmed.

State police said impairment may have been a factor in the crash. 

Editor's note: A previous version of this story said the deputy was employed at St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office.
