Yesterday, a man was killed and another was severely injured after their vehicles collided head-on in Tangipahoa Parish. Louisiana State Police say the crash happened around 5:50 p.m. Thursday on LA 10 between Franklinton and Wilmer, when a car driving eastbound crossed the center line near Charles McDaniel Road and crashed into a pickup truck driving west. The pickup driver was rushed to the hospital and died shortly after from his wounds. Police identified that driver as 68-year-old Frank Seymore Jr. of Franklinton.
The driver of the Nissan Altima was also seriously injured and taken to the hospital, where his condition was not immediately listed. He was identified as a 28-year-old Mount Hermon man.
LSP officials said the cause of the crash, and why the car driver crossed the double line in a no-passing zone, were under investigation. Both drivers were wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash.
