Investigators say a 1996 Isuzu Rodeo, driven by 56 year-old Juan Martinez-Silva, was traveling west on LA 182 just passed LA 660. The Rodeo crossed the center line and struck a 2000 Cadillac Deville that was traveling eastbound on LA 182. The Deville was being driven by 48 year-old Belinda Leonard of Raceland.  

After the head-on impact, the Rodeo began to rotate counter-clockwise and rolled onto its passenger side. Martinez-Silva, who was not wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead on the scene by the Terrebonne Parish Coroner's Office.

34 year-old John Steve of Raceland, a passenger in the Deville, died while in route to the hospital. Steve was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
