Fatal crash kills 2, leaves 1 injured

EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Deputies report a fatal accident that occurred Friday morning just after 1 a.m. at Carey Road that left two men dead and one man in the hospital.   

Deputies responded to a 911 call from an occupant of the vehicle and found a flipped Camaro in the yard of a residence in the 14000 block of Carey Road.

EMS pronounced two occupants of the vehicle dead on the scene. It appears the vehicle had been traveling westbound down Carey when the driver lost control, veered off the road and struck a driveway culvert, flipping the vehicle and traveling approximately 100 yards.

Christopher McCoy, 27, of Greenwell Springs and Jonathan Love, 26, of Central were pronounced dead on the scene.

The third occupant was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Deputies believe alcohol may have been a factor in the crash, but are awaiting toxicology results. Deputies are still investigating which occupant was driving the vehicle.
