Troopers looking for hit & run driver after 30-yr-old woman died

The mirror is believed to be from the vehicle that may have hit the victim. State troopers have narrowed it down to a 2018-2020 Dodge Ram 2500 or 3500 model.

State Police troopers say just after 10:00 p.m. on January 23, 2022, a 30-yr-old Baton Rouge woman was killed in a hit & run on Jefferson Hwy.  just south of Highland Rd.

The initial investigation shows Tatman was walking on Jefferson Hwy. when a suspected Dodge Ram that was driving northbound on Jefferson Hwy. hit Tatman. 

Tatman was transported to a hospital but died of her injuries. As part of the investigation, a toxicology sample was obtained from Tatman for analysis.

Based off of evidence collected at the scene, troopers believe the vehicle that hit Tatman is a 2018-2020 Dodge Ram 2500 or 3500 model. After hitting Tatman, the passenger side mirror housing came off of the vehicle and left on the scene. 

Anyone with information regarding this crash is asked to contact Louisiana State Police Troop A at 225-754-8500.
