May 26, 2024

West Carroll Parish, LA (July 07, 2021) – On Monday, July 5th Louisiana State Police responded to a two-vehicle accident on State Highway 17, just outside of Kilbourne, that resulted in the death of one adult and two children.  

An investigation found that, at about 9:30 p.m., a 2018 Nissan Versa, driven by Rhona N. Sanders, 35, a resident of Kilbourne, was driving eastbound on Chickasaw Loop Road, nearing LA-17.  For reasons still under investigation, Sanders neglected to stop at a stop sign just before entering the highway, causing her to crash into a southbound 2001 Chevrolet Silverado, driven by Paden Posey, 34, a resident of Oak Grove.      

Sanders and her two young passengers were pronounced dead at the scene.  

Three other passengers in the Nissan were injured and transported to a local hospital.  

Posey was unharmed during the accident.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the families of the deceased victims at this time.
