Louisiana State Police are investigating a wreck that claimed the life of a Longview, Texas man.

Troopers were called to the crash around 3 p.m. Monday which happened on I-49 south of LA Hwy. 485.

According to police, the crash involved a 2005 Honda Accord, driven by 18-year-old Deytwan Demetrius of Fort Polk, LA and a 2015 Toyota Camry, driven by 39-year-old Jabe Maddox.
