(3-28-18) A Dubach man died early Wednesday after the vehicle he was driving traveled into the opposite lane of traffic and struck another vehicle head-on.

Shortly after 4:00 p.m., Troopers assigned to Louisiana State Police Troop F responded to a two-vehicle crash on Louisiana Highway 146 just east of LA 563.  The initial investigation by State Police revealed 45-year-old Michael Williams of Dubach was driving a 1992 GMC Sierra west on LA 146.  For reasons still under investigation, the GMC traveled into the eastbound lane of LA 146 and struck a 2010 Dodge Ram, driven by 58-year-old Milton Murphy of Ruston. 

Williams, who was properly restrained, was pronounced dead at the scene by the Lincoln Parish Coroner’s Office.  Murphy, who was also restrained, was transported to a local hospital with injuries.   

Routine toxicology samples were taken and will be submitted for analysis.  The crash is being investigated.
