Two Haynesville, LA men died Sunday morning in a two-vehicle collision on U.S. 79 south of Homer, LA.
Louisiana State Police said the wreck happened about 11 a.m. in Claiborne Parish, just north of the Webster Parish line.
A report said that a 2009 Volvo passenger car, drive by Joncee Whited, 31, of Texarkana, crossed the center line and collided head-on with a 1998 Mazda Protege, driven by Charles Pitts, 33. Pitts and his passenger, Quentin Willis, 37, of Haynesville, received fatal injuries despite being properly restrained.
Whited was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. An infant passenger in Whited’s vehicle, who was properly restrained, suffered no injuries but was transported to a local hospital for evaluation.
Toxicology samples were obtained from both drivers and will be submitted for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.
