Louisiana State Police say a 13-year-old girl has died following a massive 16-vehicle crash on US 190 on the old Mississippi River Bridge Tuesday morning.
The teenager was identified as Janaria James, of Plaquemine. Apparently, the vehicle the teen was in was hit by a semi-truck. Multiple cars were also hit by several semi-trucks and the crash scene stretched for about a quarter of a mile on the bridge. Some of the other victims suffered minor to moderate injuries in the crash, police say.
