 Two Mansfield residents have died in a crash in Red River Parish.

According to Louisiana State Police, troopers responded to the single-vehicle crash just before 10 p.m. Friday on Louisiana Highway 509 one mile west of Louisiana Highway 1.

McDaniel and a passenger, 21-year-old Cleshea F. Sudds of Mansfield, were ejected from the vehicle. State police say neither was wearing a seatbelt and both were pronounced dead at the scene by the Red River Parish Coroner’s Office.

A toxicology sample was obtained from the driver. The crash remains under investigation.
