A Big Spring man is dead after a head on collision in Louisiana.

Authorities say Robert Deleon was killed instantly when his pickup crossed a center turning lane, and hit another car head on.

It is unclear why he veered off the road.

An 18-year-old woman also died in the accident.

The 40 year old is a native of Big Spring, and was living in Slidell, Louisiana at the time.

He moved to the area after Hurricane Katrina to work in the construction field.
