Local Traffic Fatality

One person died Christmas Eve night in a two-car traffic crash on Highway 390 just off US 231 in Bayou George.

Killed was 28-year-old Ronald L. Hallford of Calhoun County. Troopers say he was a passenger in a car, which had stopped on State Road 390 to make a left turn into a gas station. The car then turned into the path of another vehicle headed in the opposite direction.

Troopers say the car he was in was driven by his father, Roy Hallford, also of Calhoun County. He sustained lesser injuries. Both men were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash.

Meanwhile, the other driver, 17-year-old Samantha Adkinson of Youngstown, was not injured.

Charges in the 8:30 p.m. Christmas Eve accident are pending.
