SABINE PARISH, LA (KSLA) - Two months after a deadly 2 vehicle crash claimed the life of 71-year-old Doris E. Jones, the driver of one vehicle has been arrested and charged with vehicular homicide and negligence.

Louisiana state troopers say the crash on Carter's Ferry Road near Louisiana Hwy. 191 was reported to their agency at 3:10 p.m. on March 25.

According to State Police, a 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe was westbound on Carter's Ferry Road when 27-year-old Jessica P. Procell lost control of the vehicle. The Tahoe crossed the center line and collided with Jones' 2002 Buick LeSabre that was traveling east.

Two juveniles in Procell's vehicle sustained minor to moderate injuries. One was taken to University Health in Shreveport, the other to Sabine Medical.
