Posted: Updated:

Rapides Parish, La. (KALB News Channel 5) – A single vehicle crash killed two young teens and injured five other teens on January 27, 2014.  All the occupants were not wearing a seatbelt.

According to the Louisiana State Police, troopers responded to the crash around 9:00 p.m., which occurred on Rigolette Road west of US Hwy 71.  The crash involved a 2011 Jeep SUV, driven by a juvenile (W/M 16 yrs) of Pineville, LA.  The Jeep was westbound on Rigolette Road when the vehicle became airborne after traveling over a hill crest, due to being operated at a high rate of speed.  This action caused the juvenile driver to lose control before exiting the roadway to the left and colliding with a large tree.

The driver received minor injuries, but was not immediately transported to a medical facility.

Four of his passengers (all juveniles) from Ball or Pollock received moderate injuries and were transported to Christus Saint Frances Cabrini Hospital and Rapides Regional Trauma Center for treatment. 

Two of his passengers were pronounced dead.  They are identified as Logan Cameron Ammons, 17, of Ball, and Christain Gage Lavallie,15, of Pineville.

*This crash was not weather related.

Routine toxicology tests are pending.  The crash remains under investigation.

Troop E Troopers have investigated 5 fatal crashes in 2014, resulting in 7 fatalities.
