Ponchatoula Resident Killed in Head-On Crash

Yesterday afternoon (June 12, 2018), Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop L investigated a three vehicle fatal crash on LA 445 south of I-12 near Champ Cooper Elementary School in Tangipahoa Parish. The crash has claimed the life of 71-year-old Ponchatoula resident Ruby P. Core.
Troopers determined that a vehicle driven by Cameron Alex Crawford (27) of Ponchatoula travelled from his southbound lane into the northbound lane and into the path of a vehicle driven by Martin J. Barras of Slidell. Crawford's vehicle side-swiped Barras' vehicle and then crashed head-on with the vehicle driven by Core.
Core was transported to North Oaks Medical Center but died of her injuries. Barras was uninjured in the crash. Crawford was transported to North Oaks Medical Center and then to University Medical Center in New Orleans for further care. Upon his release from the hospital, Crawford will be transported to the Tangipahoa Parish Jail, where he will be booked for Driving Left of Center and Negligent Homicide.
