Troopers determined that the crash occurred as Self was driving a Ford Contour south on Horseshoe Rd. For reasons still under investigation, Self disregarded a stop sign as she attempted a left turn onto LA 16. On entering LA 16, Self’s vehicle was struck by a westbound GMC Sierra.
Self was unrestrained at the time of the crash. She sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased on scene. As part of the investigation, blood samples were collected from Self for scientific analysis. The driver of the GMC Sierra submitted a breath sample which showed no evidence of alcohol. As Troopers review the evidence, the investigation remains ongoing.
