CADDO PARISH, La. (KSLA) — A head-on collision sent an elderly man and woman to the hospital; the woman later died.

The Caddo Sheriff’s Office said the wreck happened just before 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 20 in the 10300 block of Blanchard Latex Road. That’s six miles west of Blanchard and almost six miles south-southwest of Mooringsport.

Caddo sheriff’s deputies said a Hyundai Elantra traveling west swerved into the eastbound lane and crashed head-on into a Chevrolet Malibu.

The Chevrolet’s driver was flown to the hospital by Life Air Rescue; and a Caddo Fire District 1 ambulance took the Hyundai’s driver to the hospital, the Caddo Sheriff’s Office reports.

Blanchard Latex Road was shut down for more than an hour as first responders worked the crash. The roadway was reopened about 3 p.m.

On Monday, Nov. 21, the Caddo Parish Coroner’s Office identified the woman killed as Minnie White, 66. She died at Ochsner LSU Health at 1:10 p.m. Monday. An autopsy was ordered.

The crash remains under investigation.
