A sneeze caused a Natchitoches woman to crash Monday afternoon.

Deputies say on Monday afternoon they responded to reports of a single-vehicle crash involving a mailbox in the 900 block of Fish Hatchery Road near Natchitoches, La.

According to LSP, 23-year-old Lacie B. Neilson of Natchitoches was operating a 2009 Mercury Mariner traveling westbound in the 900 block of Fish Hatchery Road south of Natchitoches when she entered a slight curve. Miss Nielson reported she sneezed which distracted her and caused her to leave the road on the right side striking a brick mailbox.

Nielson was wearing her seat belt in addition to the air bags being deployed during impact.
