Family of mother, daughter killed in road rage accident grieving


A mother, husband and family are devastated following the deaths of two loved ones, 31-year-old Raish-Nia Wright and her daughter, 11-year-old Dezerra Wright, both killed along LA 18 in Avondale. This following a road rage accident between two other drivers.Lynette Thomas, the mother of Raish-Nia Wright, said “People do not understand that when they have road rage, they mess up other people’s lives. You messed up my family. The road rage between them two had nothing to do with my baby, my grandchild and goddaughter. It is just a hurting feeling.”Jefferson Parish officials said Paul Fererra and another driver were feuding on the road headed eastbound when Fererra rammed his truck into the other driver’s truck. Fererra’s truck spun into the westbound lane. The same lane where Raish-Nia Wright was driving with her daughter and one other child inside. Wright ended up hitting Fererra. Fererra, Raish-Nia and her daughter all died on scene. Deano Bonano, the councilman for Jefferson Parish District 2, said “Both cars ended up in a ditch on the side of the road. It took quite a while to extract the victims.”Now, the family of a woman described as a passionate worker, business woman, mother and wife, and the 11-year-old known for her fun TikTok videos and love for fashion, are left to mourn their deaths. “The last thing she said to me before they left was ‘Dad, you have to do a TikTok with me.’ My wife. I am going to miss her so much. It’s like it’s just unreal,” said Desmond Wright, Raish-Nia Wright’s husband.Rodnesha Smith, Raish-Nia’s sister, said “It is unfortunate, the situation that happened. Because they did not deserve that. But we are taking it one day at a time.”The family also warned others that road rage is never the route to go. “For my baby and grandbaby to lose their lives over senseless people being angry– it makes me angry. Very angry. My child was only going to bring my grandbaby to get her hair twisted. That is it,” said Lynette Thomas.Right now the family is asking the community for prayers for the second child inside the car during the accident. We are told the 11-year-old is still in the hospital in critical condition.Raish-Nia and Dezerra’s funeral will be held on Saturday. Both were originally from New Orleans.LSP said the accident is still under investigation.
