6-year-old killed in Richland Parish Crash

BEE BAYOU, La. - A child is dead after succumbing to injuries he received during a crash earlier today.             

Shortly after 2:30 p.m., Louisiana State Police Troop F responded to a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 20 at the Bee Bayou exit. 

The preliminary investigation revealed a 2004 GMC Yukon, driven by 33-year-old Trina Robinson of Houma, was traveling west on I-20 when she attempted to take the Bee Bayou exit. 

While taking the exit, Robinson negotiated a slight right hand curve and began to lose control.  After losing control, she overcorrected, drove off the roadway, and began to overturn.     

A passenger in the Yukon, 6-year-old Sevanti Robinson of Houma, was seriously injured during the crash and taken to a local hospital. 

A short time later, he was pronounced dead at the hospital.  Robinson was properly restrained in a booster seat at the time of the crash. 

During the crash, four other passengers were inside the vehicle and received minor/moderate injuries.       

Routine toxicology samples were obtained and will be submitted for analysis. 

The crash remains under investigation.
