The initial investigation led Troopers to determine that the crash occurred as a Chevrolet Impala, driven by 58-year-old Stacie Mae Galbraith of Oklahoma City, was traveling east on LA 10. After disregarding a stop sign at the intersection with US 51, Galbraith’s vehicle traveled off the roadway and impacted an embankment.
McBrayer, a passenger, was improperly wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and received serious injuries. She was transported to an area hospital, succumbed to her injuries, and was pronounced deceased at the hospital. Galbraith received moderate injuries and was also transported to an area hospital. At this time, impairment is not suspected. As part of the ongoing investigation, toxicology will be performed on Galbraith. Galbraith was cited for Disregarding a Stop Sign and any additional charges will be forwarded to the Tangipahoa Parish District Attorney’s Office.
