CLINTON, La. (AP) - Louisiana State Police say a two-vehicle crash in East Feliciana Parish has left one man dead and another injured.

Troopers say shortly after 6 a.m. Wednesday, 23-year-old Cody M. Temple, of McComb, Mississippi, was headed south on Louisiana Highway 67 as 39-year-old Richard Wright, of Wilson, Louisiana, was driving north in a garbage truck.

Investigators say Temple’s car crossed the center line into the northbound lane and hit the truck head on.

Trooper say Temple was unrestrained and suffered fatal injuries as a result. Impairment is unknown and a toxicology sample was taken from him and submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for analysis.

Wright, who was properly restrained, was transported to Lane Regional Medical Center in Zachary with minor injuries.
