DENHAM SPRINGS, LA (WAFB) -

A second person has died following a two-vehicle crash Saturday night.

Louisiana State Police reported Bryan Payne, 22, of Denham Springs, died from his injuries Sunday evening. He was pronounced dead at Our Lady of the Lake Hospital in Baton Rouge around 7:30 p.m.

The wreck happened on LA 64 (Magnolia Bridge Road) west of LA 1028 in Denham Springs just before 9 p.m. Saturday. Mickel Tetreault, 20, of Livingston, also died in the crash. He was a passenger in Payne's truck.
