Early Wednesday morning, Louisiana State Police responded to a single-vehicle fatal crash on I-10 near mile marker 105 in Lafayette Parish. The crash claimed the life of 40-year-old Medora Lynn Burgess of Natchez, MS.

The initial investigation by State Police revealed that the crash occurred just after 4:00 A.M. as Burgess was driving a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV westbound on I-10. For reasons still under investigation, Burgess’ vehicle ran off the roadway to the right. Upon doing so, the SUV entered the tree line and struck a tree in an area difficult to see from the roadway.

Burgess was unrestrained and suffered fatal injuries. She was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Lafayette Parish Coroner’s Office. A toddler in the SUV was also not restrained. He was transported to a local hospital with moderate injuries.

Impairment is suspected and a standard toxicology sample was obtained for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.
