Two men killed in a crash in Thursday in Walker have been identified.
Lloyd R. Hutson, Jr., 50, of Jackson, and Raymond C. Bender, 76, of Denham Springs were identified by State Police this morning.
Both died in an accident on Thursday at about 5:30 p.m. on La. 447, near Drakeford McMorris Rd. in Livingston Parish.
According to Trooper 1st Class Jared Sandifer, a spokesperson for the State Police, Hutson's 1994 GMC pickup crossed the center lane entering a right curve while driving northbound on La. 447, hitting Bender's 2006 Lincoln Town Car head-on.
Neither was wearing a seat belt.
Toxicology samples have been sent to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab and Hutson is suspected of having been under the influence; Bender is not.
