Friends and family are mourning the death of two people, a North Vermilion High School senior and a Carencro man, who were killed in a weekend car crash.

According to Louisiana State Police, that crash happened around 9:30 p. m. Saturday on US 167 South near Lurby Road.

Investigators say Brandon Isaac was driving the wrong way down U. S. 167 South when his car struck a car driven by Ramsie Baumgardner head-on. Both Isaac, 31, of Carencro, and Baumgardner, 18, of Maurice, died at the hospital.

Toxicology reports are pending. The crash remains under investigation.

Long story short: One family is without their daughter, and a little girl will grow up without her father all because of a tragedy that most likely was preventable. One person put it best on Facebook:

Stop doing stupid stuff. Pay attention while you are driving, don’t text and drive, don’t clown around behind the wheel and by all means don’t drink and drive.
