2 Die in Weekend Crashes

Two die in weekend crashes.

The first was a single car in Saint Landry parish and a two year old died. Troopers say the child, whose name has not been released, was a passenger in the back seat. They say the driver ran off Highway 754 and hit several trees. The child was in a safety seat, but died later at the hospital.

And state troopers say a lack of seat belts and speed are factors in a weekend single-vehicle crash in Grant parish. 32-year-old Antonio Jones from Colfax died. Troopers say he lost control on his SUV and hit several trees on Highway 71 at Bush Road.
