PINE GROVE - Two people died in a head-on crash on La. 16 Saturday afternoon.
State Police identified the victims as Ronette Spann, 30, of Baton Rouge, and James Dorsey, 47, of Independence. The crash happened about 2-and-a-half miles east of Pine Grove in St Helena Parish Saturday around 5:40.
Investigators said Spann was driving east on La. 16 and, for some reason, crossed into Dorsey, who was going the opposite direction. Investigators said neither Spann nor Dorsey were wearing a seatbelt.
They died at the scene, authorities said.
