TANGIPAHOA PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

A two vehicle crash took the life of 20-year-old Kyle Rigdon, police say.

An investigation revealed that Rigdon was attempting to make a U-turn into northbound lanes on U.S. Route 51 just north of Old U.S. Route 51.

Upon pulling into northbound lanes, police say Rigdon's vehicle crashed into the passenger side of an oncoming vehicle, driven by 19-year-old Adrian Seiber. Police say the impact caused Rigdon's vehicle to leave the roadway.

Rigdon was pronounced dead. Louisiana State Police say Seiber only suffered minor injuries. Troopers also say a one-year-old child in Seiber's vehicle was not properly restrained. The child was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

Troopers say impairment does not seem to be a factor.
