LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY)- A 49-year-old Lafayette woman was killed in a crash in the 1100 block of Rue du Belier Thursday morning, police said.

According to Lafayette Police Department spokesperson Cpl. Bridgette Dugas, at about 10 a.m., officers responded to a major crash involving a Dodge Dakota and a Mazda CX9.
