SLAUGHTER, La. (AP) - State police say a 33-year-old Baton Rouge man died after the vehicle in which he was riding crashed into a pickup on La. Highway 67 in East Feliciana Parish.
Trooper First Class Nick Manale says 38-year-old Derrick Daniel, of Zachary, was driving a car south on La. 67 shortly after midnight Saturday when a pickup turned from a private drive into Daniel's path.
The front seat passenger in the car, Kenneth Taylor, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the pickup, 36-year-old Reggie Gross Jr., of Clinton, was booked with vehicular homicide and failure to yield from a private drive.
It was unclear whether Gross has an attorney.
