Officers spoke with a driver of a red Chevrolet Cobalt, who stated she was traveling west on Lafayette Parkway near the intersection of Ragland Street. She stated that as she approached the intersection, she got in the turning lane to turn south on to Ragland Street. She stated that when the turning arrows turned green and she began to turn, a silver Honda traveling east on Lafayette Parkway in the left turning lane crashed into her when it failed to turn and continued straight.

This incident is still under investigation.

  • On Tuesday, LaGrange police responded to the 200 block of Stoney Creek Drive in reference to fraud.

Officers arrived and met with the victim who stated that she had received a call from a person in Texas around 4:18 p.m. claiming to be from the FBI and that there was a warrant for her arrest.

The victim stated she then purchased the gift cards from a store and sent the information to the individual via phone.
