MANY, La. (AP) — Louisiana State Police say both drivers have died in a head-on crash, and neither was wearing a seat belt. A passenger in one car was seriously injured.

Both Joy Rains of Robeline and Jackie Hardy of Many (MAN-ee) died at the scene on Louisiana Highway 1217 near Many.

Police say 52-year-old Jerri Oliver of Many was taken to LSU Medical Center, 60 miles (98 kilometers) away in Shreveport.
