Franklinton Man Dies, Mt. Hermon Man Injured in Head-on Crash

On Thursday, October 3, 2019 at approximately 5:47 PM, Troopers from Louisiana State Police
Troop L responded to a serious injury head-on crash involving two vehicles on LA 10 near Charles McDaniel Rd. in Tangipahoa Parish. The crash has claimed the life of 68-year-old Frank Seymore Jr. of Franklinton.

The initial investigation led Troopers to determine that the crash occurred as 28-year-old Dustin Kahle of Mt. Hermon was driving a Nissan Altima east on LA 10, crossed the center-line in a no passing zone, and struck a westbound Ford Ranger. The Ford Ranger was driven by 68-year-old Frank Seymore Jr. of Franklinton. Both drivers sustained severe injuries in the crash. They were transported to an area hospital where Seymore ultimately succumbed to his injuries. As part of the investigation, blood samples were collected for scientific analysis. Both drivers were properly restrained at the time of the crash.

The investigation remains ongoing as Troopers review the evidence. Any pending criminal charges will be forwarded to the Tangipahoa Parish District Attorney’s Office.
