ORIGINAL: A head-on crash Saturday morning north of Sulphur left two people dead and another seriously injured.

Shortly after 4:00 a.m., Louisiana State Police Troop D responded to a two-vehicle crash on Louisiana Highway 27 north of Houston River Road.

The preliminary investigation revealed a 2005 Chevrolet Impala was traveling north on LA 27 when the driver, 22-year-old Alejandro Delgado of Sulphur, crossed the centerline of the highway in a no passing zone.

The Chevrolet then collided with a southbound 2011 Kia Sorento head-on.

The driver of the Kia, 26-year-old Michael Maddox, and the passenger, 27-year-old Amber Borel, both from Dry Creek, were seriously injured and transported to an area hospital.

Maddox succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Delgado was pronounced dead at the scene by the Calcasieu Parish Coroner’s Office.

Alcohol use is suspected to be a factor in the crash and toxicology samples were obtained from the drivers for analysis.

The crash remains under investigation.
