Woman killed in I-20 crash

Funeral services were held Monday for a woman killed in an Interstate 20 crash involving six vehicles in West Monroe last Wednesday.

West Monroe Police said Judy Cupit Clark, 68, of West Monroe died in the crash on eastbound I-20 near Thomas Road Wednesday afternoon.

The initial investigation determined a Donnie Plunk’s Towing & Recovery tow truck driven by John Thomas Garrett II, 24, struck two vehicles either stopped or slowed on I-20 due to traffic congestion. Clark died as a result of the crash.

The speed limit on I-20 eastbound changes from 70 miles per hour to 60 just before reaching the crash site.

Routine toxicology is pending, and police say the investigation is ongoing. Once complete, the investigation will be forwarded to the Ouachita Parish District Attorney’s Office.
