Funeral arrangements have been scheduled for a young North Louisiana woman who died in a tragic ATV wreck Friday night.
Courtney Kenney, 23 of Monroe will be buried Monday at the Jewish Cemetery on Manassas Street. A funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. in the chapel at Mulhearn Funeral Home on Sterlington Road.
Kenney was killed on the evening of July 4 while aboard a 4-wheeled Polaris Ranger ATV, driven by a woman from Mandeville. That woman, Nicole Arbour, 22 and another passenger, Laura Pigeon, 22 survived the wreck with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police said about 7 p.m. it appears that Arbour took a curve too fast on a dirt road on private property on Dixie-Shreveport Road in Caddo Parish. Investigators believe speed and alcohol may have been contributing factors, and a criminal investigation is ongoing.
A Mulhearn representative said Kenney was a senior at the University of Louisiana where she was studying hospitality management. She graduated from Neville High School in 2009.
Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to Temple B'Nai Israel Cemetery Fund of Neville Alumni and Friends Association.
