A major car wreck in Denham Springs killed one person, left another seriously injured, and a third behind bars.

The crash happened early Sunday, on LA 37. State police said 24 year old Dallas Howard ran off the road.

His vehicle hit a ditch and then several trees. He and his two passengers were ejected. Cassi Brashier was killed, and Richard Marley went to the hospital.

Troopers said Howard then ran from the crash scene, and went to a friends home.

That's where he was arrested. He faces numerous charges.

Troopers believe alcohol and drugs played a role in the crash.
