Breaux Bridge Woman Dead Following Crash

State Police say an elderly Breaux Bridge woman has died after a two vehicle crash.

It happened Friday afternoon on Highway 31 north of Breaux Bridge. Troopers say, 88-year-old Maryetta Wyche of Breaux Bridge, was driving a Pontiac north on Highway 31 when for unknown reason she crossed the center line, and hit a Chevrolet Silverado head on.

Wyche, who was wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene by the St. Martin Parish Coroner. The other driver,  73-year-old Ray Patin of Breaux Bridge, who was also wearing a seat belt, sustained moderate injuries and was transported to a local hospital.

Troopers say it is unknown if impairment was a factor in this crash; however, routine toxicology samples were obtained and will be submitted to the State Police Crime Lab for analysis.

This crash remains under investigation.
