Case of wreck involving Livingston deputy heads to grand jury

Livingston Parish Sheriff Jason Ard said in the case of one of his deputies involved in a wreck, the case is slated to go before a Livingston Parish Grand Jury.

A grand jury will have to decide if the deputy was negligent, at fault or not at fault at all in the wreck that killed a 33-yr-old woman from Denham Springs.

The wreck was on July 15, 2022, just before 1:00 am, on LA 16 southbound, south of LA 64 in Livingston Parish.

Christinia Estave was killed in the crash after she was transported to a hospital.

The initial investigation revealed that a Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy was responding to a call of service in fully marked 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe.

The deputy was headed south in the left lane on LA 16 when the deputy crashed into the rear end of a 2004 Saturn Ion.

State Police said Estave was not buckled at the time of the crash. Troopers further said impairment is suspected on Estave’s part.

The deputy was also unrestrained at the time of the crash and sustained minor injuries.

The case heads to a grand jury on October 11th.

The Louisiana State Police has been investigating the case from the beginning and they’re working with the Livingston Parish District Attorney’s Office. Prosecutors with the DA’s office will present the entire case to a Livingston Parish Grand Jury to determine if the deputy is at fault or not.
