PINE GROVE - Two people died in a head-on crash on La. 16 Saturday afternoon.

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.
