2 die in Jefferson Davis Parish crash

IOWA, La. (AP) Two people died and two others suffered moderate injuries in a five-vehicle crash in western Jefferson Davis Parish.

State police say the Wednesday crash on U.S. Highway 165 about five miles north of Interstate 10 claimed the lives of 34-year-old Shannon Cox of Lake Charles and 45-year-old Sheila Serie of Ville Platte.

Troopers tell The Advocate that a pickup driven by 45-year-old Roy Serie of Ville Platte was northbound when it crossed the median and struck a southbound car driven by Cox.

Cox was pronounced dead at the scene, as was Sheila Serie, a passenger in Roy Serie's vehicle. Roy Serie and a passenger in Cox's vehicle, 46-year-old Beth Zilbert of Lake Charles, were transported to hospitals in Lake Charles.
