A Theriot woman and her daughter are dead after investigators say the woman overturned and became submerged in a canal.
Troopers say it happened before 5:00 p.m. Wednesday on LA 315 in Terrebone Parish. Investigators say 31-year-old Ashley Worrell was driving north on LA 315, south of Falgout Canal Road, hen she overcorrected, and flipped into a canal. Worrell and her child, 3-year-old Delaney Lirette, were pulled from the submerged vehicle by volunteer firefighters. Worrell was pronounced dead at the scene. Lirette was taken to the hospital where she later died. While there was a child seat in the Titan, investigators say it is unclear if the occupants wear restrained at the time of the crash.
Alcohol use is unknown at this time and routine toxicology tests are pending. This crash remains under investigation.
