WATERPROOF, La. (KNOE) - Two people are dead following a crash in Tensas Parish, according to Louisiana State Police.

Police say they responded to the crash shortly after 7 a.m. on the morning of Mar. 5 on US Hwy 65 just south of Waterproof.

29-year-old Anjelica Johnson of Woodville, MS, and her passenger, 21-year-old Maxx Harstad of Ferriday, were both killed in the crash. Toxicology samples were obtained and will be submitted for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.

Police add:

“Buckling up is the most effective way to protect yourself during a vehicle crash. Failure to take a few seconds to buckle up can have devastating consequences.  Louisiana law requires every person in a vehicle, regardless of seating position, to be properly restrained day or night.

“In 2021, Troop F has investigated nine fatal crashes resulting in twelve deaths.”
