A hit and run driver was killed after crashing into another vehicle in Iberia Parish.

According to Louisiana State Police Troop I, troopers responded to the incident on Hwy. 86 east of Hwy. 31 shortly before 5:30pm on Monday.

35-year-old Angela Brown of Pollock, was driving her 2006 Ford Mustang  west on LA Highway 86 and crossed the centerline, side-swiping a 2012 Toyota Sienna, driven by 50 year old Carolyn Medina of Jeanerette.

After striking the Toyota Sienna, Brown attempted to flee the scene, but later traveled off of the right side of the roadway and struck a tree.

Brown was properly restrained, but was pronounced dead on scene by the Iberia Parish Coroner’s Office.

Medina was wearing a seat belt and was not injured.

Impairment is suspected to be a factor in the crash.

A toxicology sample was taken and submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis.

It is reported Brown was involved in a hit and run crash in St. Martin Parish, minutes before this crash occurred.

St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office is investigating those claims.

This crash remains under investigation.
