PIERRE PART - State Police are investigating a deadly crash that killed both drivers when their cars collided head-on.

The crash happened early Sunday morning around 6:30 a.m. on LA 70 in Assumption Parish.

Troopers say 51-year-old Lester Albarado was driving his truck northbound on LA 70 but failed to follow a right hand curve on the road causing him to cross the center line and crash into 57-year-old Gabriel Plaisance's truck driving in the southbound lane.

Both men were from the Pierre Part and were not wearing seatbelts. Investigators are still trying to determine whether any kind of impairment was a factor.
