Woman crashes into canal near I-10 in Kenner

KENNER, LA (WVUE) - A woman driving her car westbound on I-10 in Kenner ran off of the roadway and crashed into a canal Tuesday afternoon.

The accident happened near the ramp at Loyola Ave. after noon.

Police believe the woman might have suffered some sort of medical condition when her Nissan Rogue veered off the interstate, first hitting a fence pole, then driving into the canal water, according to Lt. Brian McGregor.

Emergency crews were able to rescue the woman before the driver's side of the car started taking on water. She was administered CPR on the scene and taken to the hospital.

There is no word on her condition.

Water entered into the passenger side of the car, but didn't reach the woman.
