A man is dead and his wife is in the hospital after a crash Monday night in Caddo Parish.
It happened just before 10:30 in the 9000 block of Springridge Texas State Line Road in Keithville.
Sgt. Mike Christian with Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office said there were 2 vehicles involved in the crash on what he described as a "long dark windy road."
According to the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office, 78-year-old Hattie Hines of Keithville was driving a Nissan Altima headed westbound when a GMC Envoy driven by 29-year-old Brian Fatheree of Coushatta, pulled out in front of her. The Envoy was struck on its passenger side and stopped off the road.
Hines' passenger, 76-year-old Wayne Hines of Keithville, died at the scene. Hattie Hines was admitted to University Health Shreveport. Fatheree and his passenger, Monica Williams, 27, of Keithville, both suffered moderate injuries.
Fatheree was issued citations for failure to yield and having an open container that belonged to his passenger inside his vehicle. He volunteered to undergo chemical testing, which determined he had not consumed alcohol.
The cause of the crash is being investigated by the Caddo Sheriff’s Traffic Safety Unit.
