ETHEL – Two people are dead after a car struck a tree in East Feliciana Parish Saturday night.

First responders say the single vehicle crash happened around 7:53 p.m. at the intersection Line Road and LA 955 near Ethel, Louisiana. Deputies say 22-year-old Jonathan Hilliard was driving his 2010 BMW 328 southbound when "for unknown reasons" failed to stop at a stop sign at LA 955. 

The BMW crossed the intersection before striking a tree. Hilliard and his passenger, 21-year-old Sterling Kado were killed. The East Feliciana Parish Coroner's Office pronounced both individuals dead at the scene. 

Investigators say Hilliard and Kado were both wearing seatbelts. It is unknown if impairment was a factor in the crash. Blood samples were taken from the driver and will be sent to the Louisiana State Crime Lab for analysis.
