ERWINVILLE - Eastbound 190 closed overnight and for some of Saturday morning due to a crash.

The wreck happened at Section Road, about two miles west of La. 413.  Authorities diverted traffic onto westbound lanes, forcing drivers to share the two-lane highway.

Little traffic had developed as a result of the closure.  The highway opened just before 10 a.m.

State Police said a driver headed a westbound driver crossed into eastbound traffic and hit another vehicle head-on.  The driver who caused the wreck, 21-year-old Landon Giordano of Lakeland, was killed.  The other driver, a 24-year-old, was taken to an area hospital with injuries.
