This morning around 7:30, a vehicle was travelling westbound on Interstate 10 between Hwy. 44 and Hwy. 30 in Gonzales. It is thought she lost control upon making a lane change. It was at this time that her vehicle entered the median where it struck several trees in the area.
The driver, Bridget Deselle, 49, of Lutcher, was pronounced dead at the scene.
“Accidents of any description are sad, but this is such a tragedy. Driving must be something people everywhere pay diligent attention to. Too often we are hearing about fatalities on our roadways. I hope these accidents can serve as warnings and as lessons to all drivers,” said Chief of the Gonzales Police Department, Sherman Jackson.
