Drunk Driving

Union Parish – On September 9, 2018, at approximately 9:20 p.m., Louisiana State Police Troop F responded to a two-vehicle fatal crash on LA Hwy 2 just west of Farmerville.

The preliminary investigation revealed a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado, driven by 51-year-old Tracy Fields of Farmerville, was traveling east on LA Hwy 2. Troopers suspect that due to Fields being impaired, his vehicle crossed the center line into the westbound lane and struck a 1991 Ford F-150 driven by 60-year-old Gregory Andrews of Bernice.

Michael Reichardt, public information officer for Louisiana State Police Troop F, says that it's best to talk out the issue instead of letting tempers flare. One DWI can follow a teen for an entire lifetime and affect their social life and academic career.
