A married couple was traveling north along Louisiana Highway 25 one Friday evening. At the same time, another vehicle occupied only by its driver was heading in the opposite direction. As the southbound vehicle approached the couple's vehicle, it crossed into the opposing lanes of traffic and slammed into their vehicle head-on. When authorities arrived at the scene of the car accident, only one person remained alive.
The 83-year-old man driving the northbound vehicle and the 82-year-old woman driving the southbound vehicle both suffered fatal injuries in the impact and were pronounced dead at the scene. The man's wife, a passenger in the car, survived the crash but suffered injuries. She was transported to a nearby hospital by helicopter for treatment.
