Metairie I-10 crash kills two

Two women died Sunday night after their car ricocheted across Interstate 10 in Metairie. The cause of the crash is under investigation by the Louisiana State Police but the women were likely driving above the speed limit, according to spokeswoman Melissa Matey.

Susan Perez of Metairie, 31, was driving east near Cleary Avenue when her car, a 2004 Toyota Camry, suddenly veered to the left and hit the barrier, then crossed all eastbound lanes and hit the right guardrail. Perez and her passenger, Karla Ordonez of New Orleans, 35, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Both women were wearing seat belts. Toxicology tests are forthcoming.
