31-year-old Keayette Wilkens, 52-year-old Angela Wilkins and 10-month-old Jacon Wilkens dead in a crash (Gramercy, LA)

On Wednesday, 31-year-old Keayette Wilkens, 52-year-old Angela Wilkins and 10-month-old Jacon Wilkens, all from LaPlace, lost their lives following a multi-vehicle wreck in St. James Parish.

The fatal three-vehicle pile-up took place just after 5 p.m. on US Highway 61, south of I-10 in St. James Parish. The early reports showed that Keayette Wilkens and her two passengers, Angela Wilkins and Jacon Wilkens, were heading north on US Hwy 61 in a 2018 Chevrolet Cruze while a 2021 Kia Telluride was going south on US Hwy 61.

Just then, the Chevrolet veered off the roadway to the left and crossed the median for reasons that are yet to be known. After going over the median, the Chevrolet entered the southbound lanes of US Hwy 61 and crashed into the Kia. After that, the Chevrolet was hit by a southbound 2008 Toyota Tacoma.

Keayette Wilkens, Angela Wilkins, and Jacon Wilkens were ejected from the vehicle as they were not wearing their seatbelts at the time of the wreck. They suffered major injuries and were declared dead at the scene by the officials.

The drivers of the Kia and Toyota were buckled up at that time. They incurred only minor injuries as a result of the accident. Toxicology samples were taken from all three drivers and submitted for analysis. No additional details are made available.

The incident remains under active review.
