Head-on wreck kills Ville Platte couple
A head-on wreck in St. Landry Parish Saturday killed a Ville Platte couple, State Police said.
Frederick Phillips, 87, and Bonnie Phillips, 84, were killed in the wreck that occurred at about 8 p.m. on La. 167, north of La. 103, said Trooper Brooks David, a spokesman with the Louisiana State Police.
The couple, who were headed north in a 2010 Ford Fusion, attempted to pass another vehicle when their car crashed head-on into a southbound 2014 Ford F-150 pickup truck driven by 26-year-old Elliot Leblanc of Breaux Bridge, David said.
“Leblanc was unable to avoid the crash and the vehicles struck head-on,” David said in the news release.
Frederick Phillips, the driver of the Fusion, was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and suffered fatal injuries, David said. Bonnie Phillips, a passenger, was wearing a seat belt, but suffered fatal injuries, he said.
Leblanc, who was wearing a seat belt, suffered moderate injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment, David said.
David said that alcohol is not suspected to have played a role in the crash, though toxicology samples from both drivers were sent to the State Police crime lab for analysis. The crash remains under investigation.
