ST. JAMES - One person is dead and three others were seriously injured after a crash near the Sunshine Bridge Sunday evening. The crash happened on La. 18 just south of the bridge in St. James Parish.

State Troopers say, Julio Cuxum was driving on La. 18 when he hit another vehicle head-on coming out of a curve in the road. The driver of the car, 52-year-old Antonio Harrison, was not wearing a seat belt and was pronounced dead at the scene. Two passengers in Harrison's car were also seriously injured in the crash.

Cuxum also suffered serious injuries. He has been taken to a hospital in Gonzales for treatment.

Troopers believe Cuxum may have been drinking.

Toxicology samples were taken on scene from both drivers.
