According to wreck investigator, Trooper Cody Ballard, 35-year-old Jael Vega, of Lafayette, was driving a northbound white 2002 Honda Civic and 28-year-old Jonathan Rose, also of Lafayette, was driving south on Hwy. 10 in a 2012 Ford F-150 pickup truck. There was a male juvenile passenger in the Honda Civic.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts. Mr. Rose was charged with due care.
