A two-vehicle crash just north of Delhi claimed the life of an Epps woman early Thursday morning.
According to information released by Louisiana State Police Troop F, deputies responded to the accident on LA Hwy. 17 shortly before 7 a.m. Officials said the initial investigation revealed a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado, driven by 31-year-old Kristopher Plumley, of Pioneer, was traveling northbound when, for reasons still under investigation, Plumley drove the vehicle into the southbound land, striking head-on a 2005 PT Cruiser driven by 35-year-old Victoria Gordon, of Epps.
Gordon, who troopers say was properly restrained, was pronounced dead at the scene. Plumley, who was unrestrained at the time of the accident, was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries. Toxicology samples were obtained and will be submitted for analysis.
The crash remains under investigation.
