Louisiana mother charged with killing 1-year-old daughter in car crash she didn’t cause

first_img Related East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office(BATON ROUGE) — A Louisiana mother whose 1-year-old daughter was killed in a fatal car crash has been charged with negligent homicide and seat belt violation, police said.Brittany Stephens, 20, was arrested by Baton Rouge Police on Feb. 27 in connection to the Oct. 12, 2017, accident. Police said the driver, identified as 28-year-old off-duty Baton Rouge Police officer Christopher Manuel, was speeding when he crashed his 2007 Corvette into a 2002 Nissan Xterra, causing it to roll over. Stephens and her daughter were passengers in the Nissan.The baby, Sevaira Stephens, was seriously injured and transported to a local hospital where she later died.Manuel was arrested on Feb. 16 and charged with negligent homicide and speeding, police said.Sevaira’s death was ruled an accident by East Baton Rouge Parish coroner Dr. Beau Clark. The cause of death was blunt force trauma to the neck with a fracture of the cervical spine and a contusion of the cervical spinal cord, a common injury that occurs when a car suddenly comes to a stop, Clark told ABC News.The child was in a car seat but it was not secured properly, Baton Rouge Police Sgt. Don Coppola Jr. told ABC News. The 2002 Xterra only seats five passengers yet four adults and four children were in the car, police said.“Ms. [Stephens] had told investigators that the car seat was placed on the console, wedged in between the two front seats of the vehicle,” Coppola said. “The car seat was wedged in between the two front seats.”Stephens was seated in the rear of the vehicle at the time of the crash, Coppola said. She told authorities that she was the one who secured Sevaira’s car seat, he said.Authorities believe Stephen’s alleged negligence contributed to Sevaira’s death.“During the investigation of the case, investigators charged the appropriate parties who contributed to the death of the child,” Coppola said.Manuel was traveling at 94 mph when he struck the Nissan, according to local Baton Rouge newspaper The Advocate. He is currently on paid administrative leave as he awaits a pre-termination hearing, Coppola said.ABC News could not immediately reach representatives for Stephens and Manuel for comment.Police said the investigation is ongoing.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Library children’s area, community room under construction after recent flood damage

first_imgby Amber Countryman, Sumner Newscow — Following the recent May floods, the Wellington Public Library received considerable damage to the downstairs area, which contains the children’s library and community room.“As a combination of ground flooding and a sump pump failure, that both worked toward the flooding of the library,” said Tom Kohmetscher, Wellington Public Library Board president. “While we got water over a good portion of the floor, destroying the carpet and much of the sheetrock, the library staff and volunteers got to work immediately and were able to get the books out of the high moisture content rooms, and moved to a dry place for storage. At this point, it looks like most of the children’s books can be salvaged.”Eagle Construction was able to start work immediately on drying the rooms, pulling up carpet and replacing sheetrock. Jeff Brungardt of Wellington worked on the electrical portion, and Chew Plumbing was also able to come right out.“We are really blessed by the fact that we had local contractors willing to come work immediately — that made a big difference,” Kohmetscher said. “They had loads of calls but were still able to come right away. We are lucky in that regard.”The library is expecting to be fully functional again by July 1. Until then, patrons can use the 7th Street entrance, and those needing assistance can ring the doorbell at the Jefferson Street entrance and a staff member will assist you.A temporary children’s area has been set up near the adult circulation desk upstairs. The summer reading program activities will continue as planned, but story time on Wednesday mornings will be held outside on the lawn, weather permitting.As immediate damage was addressed, some structural damage was uncovered.“We are going to have to put foundation supports along the west side, and do significant excavation work to grade away from the building so that water won’t be backed up against it,” Kohmetscher said. “We got the immediate damage taken care of, but there are still a lot of projects left to work on. This will help address long-standing issues with the building and grounds.”Recently, trees had to be removed from the grounds to get the drainage away from the building.The library is accepting donations toward the renovation costs. Checks can be mailed to the library, or taken to the adult circulation desk.“The building is such a gem, it’s just needing some tender loving care,” Kohmetscher said. “With what we’re doing, we’re hoping to make it a gem for another 150 years.”Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.
