One person was killed and two people were injured after a head-on collision Tuesday in which alcohol is suspected to be a factor, Louisiana State Police said.

The crash, involving a 2007 Chevrolet HHR and a 2008 Dodge Dakota, happened about 2:45 p.m. on U.S. Hwy. 80 at Middle Road.

The driver of the Chevrolet HHR, 33-year-old Kevin Liker, of Dubberly, crossed a double yellow line and slammed into the Dodge driven by 48-year-old Douglas McCoy of Minden, troopers said.

The unrestrained passenger in the Dodge, 66-year-old Linda McCoy, of Minden, was airlifted to an area hospital where she later died from her injuries.

Both drivers were wearing their seatbelts, but still sustained moderate to serious injuries, according to a state police news release.

Alcohol and speed are suspected and the crash remains under investigation.

    This could have been avoided! People are always in such a hurry now days! Smh what was so important that they had to try and pass the car in front of them. This is so tragic!

    I have Doug and Linda for several years now. Doug used to be an employee at my business. Mrs. Linda McCoy had had a bout with breast cancer. That would stand to reason why she did not have a seat belt on. I know people look at the facts of incidents without having a full understanding. I consider mr and mrs McCoy very good friends of mine.
