According to the Baton Rouge Police Department, the crash happened Saturday, July 11 at roughly 2:45 p.m. in the 10400 block of Old Hammond Hwy.

Investigators believe a Lincoln Town Car crossed the center lane and hit a Nissan Altima head-on. This caused a Nissan Versa to crash into the back of the Altima.

The driver of the Lincoln, a 34-year-old male, was taken to the hospital with what police described as moderate injuries. In the car with him were two children, a 2-year-old and 4-year-old. They were both taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

Investigators noted that the children did not appear to be restrained with any safety feature at the time of the crash.

The Nissan Versa was being driven by Corey Sanderford, 25, of Baton Rouge. He was pronounced dead at the scene. A male passenger in the vehicle was taken to the hospital.

The driver of the Nissan Altima, a 21-year-old female, and a 45-year-old female passenger, had minor injuries.

Although the crash remains under investigation, it is believed impairment is a factor.
