69-yr-old Denham woman killed on I-12

On February 24, 2022, shortly after 11:00 p.m., State Police Troopers responded to a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 12 eastbound near LA 63 in Livingston Parish.

The crash killed Maria Alonso, 69, of Denham Springs.

The initial investigation revealed that Alonso was driving a 2015 Chevrolet Impala headed east on Interstate 12.

At the same time, a 2009 Dodge Challenger was also headed east on Interstate 12. It’s unclear at this time why but officials say Alonso parked her vehicle on the interstate in the left travel lane and moved over to the passenger front seat.

That’s when the Challenger hit Alonso’s Impala.

Alonso was not buckled at the time of the crash and died from her injuries.

The driver of the Challenger was properly buckled and was transported to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

As part of the ongoing investigation, a toxicology sample was taken from both people and will be submitted for analysis.
