The initial investigation shows Henson was driving a 2014 Dodge Challenger south on U.S. 167 about five miles south of Ruston and attempting to turn left onto LA 148, Troop F Master Trooper Michael Reichardt reports.

As the car was crossing the northbound lanes, it was struck by a 2015 Mack being driven by 56-year-old Jerry Manhart, of Camden, Ark.

Henson and Hoffman, her front-seat passenger, were pronounced dead at the scene by a representative of the Jackson Parish coroner’s office.

Manhart was taken to a local hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries.

All three were properly restrained in their vehicles at the time of the crash, Reichardt said.

A toxicology sample will be submitted for analysis.

Louisiana State Police Troop F has investigated six fatal crashes resulting in seven deaths this year.
