DENHAM SPRINGS — A Walker man was killed in a crash around noon Sunday on U.S. 190 at Juban Road after the vehicle he was riding in struck another car head-on, a State Police spokesman said in a news release.
Jade Severio, 20, was a backseat passenger in a 2009 Hyundai Accent that was headed east on U.S. 190 near the intersection of Juban Road, Sgt. Len Marie said in the release.
The Hyundai struck a 2009 Chevrolet pickup truck as the truck was turning left onto Juban Road from U.S. 190, Marie said.
Severio was taken to a hospital where he later died from his injuries, Marie said.
No other injuries were reported in the crash, Marie said.
The occupants of the truck and the car were wearing seatbelts, and alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash, Marie said. However, routine toxicology samples have been submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis.
The crash remains under investigation, Marie said.
