CENTRAL — A Denham Springs man died Thursday evening from injuries he suffered when his pickup truck slammed head-on with an oncoming a FedEx truck in the 15300 block of Wax Road in Central, said Central Police Chief James Salsbury.

Hodge Curry, 53, hit the FedEx truck just before 5 p.m., having veered into the oncoming lane, Salsbury said. He said the crash is still under investigation, but it appeared to have been Curry's fault.

He added that the female driver of the FedEx truck appeared to be okay, but has been examined as a precaution.
