Woman dies in head-on-crash

Greensburg resident Joann Daily, 69, died Saturday in a head-on wreck at the top of a hill on LA 38 west of LA 43 in St. Helena Parish, according to Troop L.

The wreck happened about 12:30 p.m., and driver impairment is suspected, troopers said.

The initial investigation led troopers to determine that Daily was westbound in the eastbound lane of LA 38 in a 2020 Nissan Versa that hit an eastbound 2019 Buick Envision as it crested a hill.

Daily was unrestrained and sustained fatal injuries in the crash, troopers said.

The St. Helena Parish coroner's office pronounced her dead at the scene.

As a part of the investigation, a blood sample was collected from both drivers for scientific analysis.
