Gibson woman killed in one-vehicle wreck

Gibson, La. -- A Gibson woman died when the vehicle she was driving lost control and struck a tree in Terrebonne Parish about 6:30 a.m. Sunday, according to a Louisiana State Police news release.

The investigation revealed that a 2008 Chevrolet Colorado was traveling west on La. 182 just west of the Bayou Delight restaurant in Terrebonne Parish.  The Colorado was being driven by Vickie Landry, 60, of Gibson, La.  As the Colorado traveled west, the vehicle entered a slight left curve in the roadway.  Landry lost control of the vehicle and traveled off the right side of the roadway where the Colorado struck a tree and came to rest.  

Landry, who was wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead on the scene by a Terrebonne Parish Coroner’s Office representative.

Investigating troopers report that impairment was not a factor in the crash, but routine toxicology tests are pending.  This crash remains under investigation.
