Police: Drunk driver injures 5 teenage anglers

March 31, 2018

POINTE AUX CHENES, La. (AP) — Louisiana State Police say a drunk driver injured five teenage anglers.

Trooper Jesse LaGrange says the boys, aged 15, 16 and 17, were fishing near the shoulder of a long Terrebonne Parish road when a 2003 Ford F-150 hit them Friday evening.

He says in a news release that three were flown to New Orleans with moderate to severe injuries, and two had minor injuries.

LaGrange says a breath test showed 45-year-old Jan Breaux of Raceland had more than the legal limit of alcohol in her blood, and she was arrested on charges of vehicular negligent injuring, careless driving and third-offense DWI.

Vehicular injury refers to injuring someone by driving while impaired.

Online jail information shows bond was denied. It wasn’t clear whether Breaux has an attorney.
