Paulina – On November 21, 2022, shortly after 6:45 p.m., Troopers with Louisiana State Police Troop A began investigating a single-vehicle crash involving a pedestrian on LA 3125 west of LA 642 in St. James Parish. The crash ultimately claimed the life of 46-year-old Erin Reviere of Gramercy.

The initial investigation revealed that a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado was headed east on LA 3125 in the left lane of travel.  At the same time, Reviere, who was dressed in dark clothing, walked south across the eastbound lanes of LA 3125.  For reasons still investigated, Reviere was struck by the Silverado.

Reviere sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased on scene.  The driver of the Silverado was properly restrained and did not sustained any injuries in the crash.  Impairment is not suspected for the driver of the Silverado and is unknown for the pedestrian.  Standard toxicology samples were taken from both driver and pedestrian and will be submitted for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.

Pedestrians should always ensure that they are visible to drivers by wearing bright or light-colored clothing and reflective material.  Pedestrians should always utilize sidewalks and when no sidewalk is available, walk as close to the roadway’s edge while facing traffic.  If walking at night, always carry a flashlight for added safety.
