A two vehicle crash on Louisiana Highway 527 just east of Johnson Koran Road has claimed the life of a Stonewall woman.
State Police report that a 2003 Chevrolet Impala driven by 22-year-old Sidney Brunson of Doyline was headed west on LA 527 when it was hit from behind by a 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer driven by 29-year-old Corey Howell of Elm Grove.
Both vehicles left the roadway. The SUV rolled over ejecting 45-year-old Stephanie Morgan of Stonewall who was not buckled up.
