BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A crash left three people dead and another person injured Friday morning, September 29, according to officials.

Officials said the crash happened around 9:45 a.m. on Hooper Road near Mickens Road in Baton Rouge.

Johnny Duncan, 76, Mary Fox, 67, and Jennifer Pate, 48 were killed in the crash, according to Louisiana State Police.

LSP states that Duncan was driving a 2008 Dodge Ram and headed west in an eastbound lane on LA 408 and Fox was traveling east on LA 408 in a 1997 Chevrolet Silverado.

Officials state that for reasons still being investigated, the Dodge Ram continued traveling west in the eastbound lane, struck the Silverado head-on, and exited the roadway into the median. The impact caused the Silverado to spin, at which point a 1999 Dodge Ram struck the Silverado.

Duncan was not restrained at the time of the crash and succumbed to his injuries at the scene.

Fox and Pate were restrained but succumbed to their injuries at the scene. The rear passenger of the Silverado was restrained and subsequently transported to a local hospital with moderate injuries from the crash.
