WASHINGTON PARISH – On September 13, Louisiana State Troopers responded to a serious injury crash on LA 21 south of LA 3124 in Washington Parish.

The crash happened just before 6:00 p.m.

One of the passengers in the vehicle, 11-year-old Jahni Green of Bogalusa, was ejected during the crash and transported to a local hospital. On September 15, Jahni Green succumbed to his injuries.

The initial investigation led Troopers to determine that Narfseea Green was traveling north on LA 21 in a 2011 Nissan Versa.  For reasons still under investigation, the vehicle left the roadway and overturned.  Another child passenger, a 4-year-old, sustained minor injuries. Narfseea Green sustained moderate injuries.

During the ongoing investigation, Troopers determined that Narfseea Green was over the legal limit of alcohol at the time of the crash; a drug toxicology test is still pending at the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab. 

Troopers obtained an arrest warrant for Narfseea Green on the following charges:

  • Vehicular Homicide
  • Careless Operation
  • No Child Restraint
  • No Seatbelt

She was arrested on September 22, 2020 and booked into the Washington Parish Jail.
