39-year-old Tonya Morgan Young killed after an auto-pedestrian collision in Calcasieu Parish (Calcasieu Parish, LA)

Authorities identified 39-year-old Tonya Morgan Young, of Elton, as the woman who lost her life after being hit by two vehicles on Saturday in Calcasieu Parish.

Officers actively responded to the area of LA Hwy 3256 (I-10 South Frontage Road) just west of Iowa a little before 11:00 p.m. on reports of an auto-pedestrian crash. The early reports showed that the pedestrian, who was wearing dark-colored clothing, was walking in the westbound lane of travel on LA 3256.

Just then, the driver of a 2014 Buick Verano, who was heading west, hit Young. She was later struck a second time by an unknown vehicle that was going east. Young suffered major injuries and was declared dead at the scene by the officials. The driver and passenger of the Buick remained unharmed in the accident.

It is unknown if the driver of the second vehicle remained at the scene or not after the crash. Impairment on the part of the driver of the Buick is not suspected at this time, but a toxicology sample was taken and submitted for analysis. No other details have been provided by the authorities.

The crash remains under review.
