ARCOLA - State police identified two men killed in a fiery crash in Tangipahoa Parish Sunday night.
Investigators with LSP Troop L said 30-year-old Reginald D. Williams Jr. of Fluker and his passenger, 30-year-old Quentin D. Pitts of Hammond, were both pronounced dead at the scene just east of Arcolo on LA 10.
State police said around 9:30 p.m. Sunday Williams was driving east on LA 10 when he went into a curve and then left the road, running into a culvert and flipping the his car. Troopers said the vehicle hit a fence post and tree before catching on fire.
