On Your Side
An area woman is fighting for her life this morning after she drove her car off of the top level of the Boomtown Casino parking garage.
It happened around 4am.
According to Bossier City spokesman Mark Natale the woman drove through 10 metal cables that serve as the garage's guard rails.
The car fell about 60 feet and landed on its roof.
The woman's name has not been released at this hour.
She was taken to LSU-Hospital with critical injuries.
Authorities aren't sure what led to the accident.
A late model Chevrolet Caprice driven by Robin Alexander Lyons, 21, of Shreveport crashed through a barrier of steel cables and fell approximately 60 feet onto a concrete entrance/exit ramp of the parking garage.
Police say they believe alcohol may have been a factor in the crash and that Lyons was wearing a seat belt. The crash remains under investigation. There were no other injuries reported to police.
Lyons remains in critical condition.
