Local woman killed in Louisiana crash; was subject of Fox 2 gun story
Rayne, LA (KPLR) – A Metro East woman was killed in a single vehicle crash near Rayne, Louisiana Wednesday afternoon.
Family members confirm to Fox 2 News that 47-year-old Sandra Farris was thrown from a truck after it ran off Interstate 10 and crashed into a tree. Sandra’s husband Bob was driving the truck and lost control when a trailer he was hauling started to sway. Bob Farris and a 19-year-old passenger were hospitalized after the accident. Sandra Farris was ejected from the truck and pronounced dead at the scene.
Sandra and Bob Farris were the focus of a Fox 2 News story in April 2014 after a picture of Sandra was rejected by People magazine for its “Beauty At Every Age” photo contest. Bob had submitted a picture of Sandra holding a pistol. When People rejected his entry, he tried again with another gun picture. After a second rejection, a third photo of Sandra without a gun was accepted. People told Fox 2 News its rules reserved its right to reject photos for inappropriate content.
