Two people were killed Tuesday afternoon in a multiple-vehicle collision near Mandeville that snarled rush-hour traffic: 54-year-old Gordon Johnson of Covington, and 63-year-old Corinne Talbert of Madisonville.
The crash happened about 5 p.m. on northbound U.S. 190 between the La. 22 and Fairway Drive exits, State Police said.
Four vehicles were involved in the crash, which began when a Johnson’s Ford crossed from the southbound lanes into the northbound lanes, State Police said.
The Ford collided head-on with Talbert’s Toyota, then went airborne, rotated and struck two other northbound vehicles, State Police said.
One person was treated at the scene and another person was treated at a local hospital for injuries that were not serious, State Police said.
