Woman dead in La. 33 wreck
A Ruston woman was killed in a two-vehicle collision on Wednesday.
Ruston Police Department Chief Steve Rogers said at around 9:56 a.m. the RPD received a call about a wreck on Louisiana Highway 33 at the intersection with the North Service Road East.
Rogers said it appears at this time that a 2001 Mercury Sable driven by Nelda Allen, 82, of Ruston, was westbound on the North Service Road East and pulled into the path of a northbound 2011 Ford Expedition driven by Alicia Craighead, 31, of Farmerville. In the resulting collision, Allen and her passenger, her husband John Allen, were both reportedly transported to the Northern Louisiana Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead. Rogers said he understands John Allen remains in the hospital with serious injuries.
