HARVEY, La. -- Deputies have arrested a 45-year-old woman for negligent homicide in connection with a fatal car accident last month.
The charges stem from an incident Aug. 20, when 45-year-old Elaine Jeudy allegedly struck 45-year-old Olen Duplessis on the side of Manhattan Boulevard as he stood behind his truck.
Officials say Duplessis died 10 days after the accident.
Jeudy was booked into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center.
