Heather Crockett charged with DWI after crashing into car driven by Steven Wallace on Louisiana 25.
A motorist from Franklinton was booked with DWI after causing a head-on collision Tuesday night on Louisiana 25 north of Covington, State Police said. Heather Crockett, 37, who was not wearing a seat belt, received moderate injuries and was taken by ambulance to St. Tammany Parish Hospital, police said.
The driver of the second vehicle was identified as Steven Wallace, 59, of Abita Springs. Wallace, who was wearing a seat belt, received minor injuries and refused on-scene medical treatment, police said.
Crockett was driving a van north on Louisiana 25 at about 8:30 p.m. when, for reasons under investigation, she crossed the center line and struck a southbound Chevrolet Camaro driven by Wallace at the M P Planche Road intersection in the Lake Ramsey area, a Troop L spokesman said.
Impairment is suspected on Crockett's part, and a blood sample was collected, police said. The results are pending.
Crockett also was booked with improper lane usage and failure to wear a seat belt.
