Passenger Dies in Single-Vehicle Crash on Interstate 12

On Tuesday, April 7, 2020 shortly after 12:00 PM, Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop L
responded to a single-vehicle, serious injury crash on Interstate 12 West near LA 445 in Tangipahoa Parish. The crash has claimed the life of 37-year-old Charlene L. Fontana of Madisonville.

The initial investigation led Troopers to determine that the crash occurred as a Ford Explorer, driven by 38-year-old Jason R. Sullivan of Springfield, was driving west on Interstate 12. For reasons still under investigation, the Explorer traveled off the roadway and struck a tree. Sullivan and his passenger, Fontana, were transported to an area hospital with serious injuries. Despite wearing a seat belt, Fontana succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced deceased at the hospital. Sullivan was also wearing a seat belt.

At this time, impairment is not suspected. As part of the crash investigation, a blood sample was collected for scientific analysis from Sullivan. The investigation remains ongoing and any criminal charges will be forwarded to the Tangipahoa Parish District Attorney’s Office.
