I hear vague news on the tube that there was. Now, naturally, being the media they mention something of more details at 6 pm and that came and went and still no news of what happened, when or where

The website vermiliontoday.com says that the girl survived. Don't know if that's true. They do show a picture of the vehicle. It was bad. Prayers for the families go out to them.

The young man, Shawn Touchard, was 19 years old, and was from Delcambre. The young girl, named Rachelle Hollier,supposedly died during the night or this morning. I'm not certain. It's so sad for all of their loved ones. I taught Shawn in fourth grade. He was a good kid, very intelligent and sweet. My prayers and thoughts are with their family and loved ones. RIP, Shawn....

The intersection of Hwy 696 and Hwy 167 is very dangerous. Many accidents. Perhaps it is that the person on 696 cannot judge the distance of cars coming due to some kind of obstruction or the deal that once cars leave the town of Maurice and the 40 mph speed limit they just take off. Perhaps also the speed limit on 167 should maybe be reduced. I just think the LDOT should take a look at that. Ooh no, another survey lasting for years on end and many more people dieing. My thoughts and prayers to the families of the victim or victims.

Most drive 80 on that stretch of road. With good radar detectors the cops usually don't catch them.
This was a single car accident caused by the driver speeding. not on 167.
Speed limits will be temporarily lowered once the repairs are started on the road.

The person with all the judging with mean racy incindiary and nuts and spam judgments you need to stop and think. One day this could be your relative as in the case that I just found out from my mother that the young lady involved in this accident is her first cousin's grandaughter, Point is you never know who you are judging and it could be about someone you know. You need God. Hopefully, the topix people will deal with the comments and judgments as I have sent about 10 reports to them just this past week.

Sure it is a dangerous intersection. But so is any intersection that people choose not to obey the stop sign or the traffic light.
Maybe they need to do like the ports do when a big ship comes into port. They have to hire a special captain to steer the ship in, so maybe tifi you could petition the state to start hiring drivers for every intersection in the state.

Yes, she has died. she was an organ donor. Now that takes a special young person to do this and understand the process. The funeral home will open for her wake at 2pm tomorrow at Vincent's.

Now, whoever you are that would like to make fun of this you just go right ahead. Regardless how you judge me right or wrong I will not be a party to that.

That is not meant for you splitpea. It's meant for southofabbeville and TT and whoever else would like to make a mean vicious comment about someone young dieing in a carcrash. God sees what you type and what you feel in your heart.

Believe me I have been paying attention. Maybe I deserved some criticism, but it's been taken too damned far. That's why I will bombard the topix big dogs every day all day long if I have to. I would like to see this topix board change to something constructive and less vicious and meaningless. I have searched many of topix boards from many cities and Abbeville's is the worst by far.

I can see how some would judge this way. First it starts as a genuine concern for someone who died. Then it evolves into the deceased speeding, drunk, on drugs, and all the other horrible things said. Let the deceased rest in peace without attacking him his family or others. The family is having a hard enough time besides reading about it right here.

"Good grief" totally understand what you wrote.... Me an Fred praying for both families, never ever easy losing a child, no matter under what circumstance.
I believe the thread went off track when someone clearly miss interpreted other peoples post of sympathy. So before that someone starts ranting they should reread the previous post.

I have a question that someone out there will know the answer. This young man on the arrest report of the VPSO http://vermilionsheriff.net :8888/html/index2.php?nav=reco rd&recent_booking=Y&id =952201
Is he tied to this deadly crash? Rumor has it, that someone else helped cause this crash.
