Acadia Parish, with a population of nearly 62,000 citizens, was founded in 1887 and is named after the former French-Canadian colony of Acadia, which is home to present-day Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, among other provinces. The parish seat is in the city of Crowley, which has a population of over 14,000 residents and is named for a famed local railroad constructor. Acadia Parish was originally a part of St. Landry Parish before a public vote was held to create an independent parish in 1887. The parish is neighbors with Lafayette Parish to the east and Jefferson Davis Parish to the west.
Nearly 69,000 people were injured in motor vehicle accidents in Louisiana and an additional 668 were killed last year alone. With millions of motorists living and passing through Louisiana each year, these accidents are everyday occurrences that too often lead to debilitating injuries that devastate victims and their families.
