Assumption Parish crash victim dies day after head-on collision

She along with the other driver were transported to the hospital for treatment but Borne died from her injuries the next day.

ASSUMPTION PARISH, La. — One of the victims in a Dec. 3 car crash in Assumption Parish has died from her injuries, according to the Louisiana State Police.

Friday just after 12, Troop C said they were called out to the two-vehicle head-on crash on the Louisiana Highway 308 about a mile south of LA Highway 70 Spur, that claimed the life of 77-year-old Diane Borne of Napoleonville.  

Investigations revealed that Borne was heading north on the interstate in a 2010 Nissan Sentra when she tried to pass a vehicle in a no-pass zone. As she crossed the centerline she collided with a 2015 Nissan Sentra heading south down the interstate.

She along with the other driver were transported to the hospital for treatment but Borne died from her injuries the next day.

Troopers said both drivers were wearing seatbelts and the crash is currently under investigation.

Troop C has investigated 41 fatal crashes resulting in 56 deaths in 2021.

" Drivers should always make good decisions while operating motor vehicles. Obeying all traffic laws and never driving while impaired, fatigued, or distracted can often mean the difference between a safe drive and one that ends in tragedy," said Louisiana State Police Troop C.
