1 dead in ATV accident in Terrebonne

CHAUVIN, La. (AP) — A woman has died after an early morning all-terrain vehicle accident in Terrebonne Parish.

State police say 39-year-old Zora White of Bourg was a passenger on a four-wheel ATV being operated by her husband, 34-year-old Daniel White III early Saturday morning.

State police say they had been on a restricted access road and were approaching a street in Chauvin shortly after midnight. Daniel White failed to see a steel gate positioned across the roadway. He and his wife were ejected when the ATV hit the gate.

White was booked into the Terrebonne Parish jail on a charge of vehicular homicide.
