A 7-month pregnant woman and a man were killed in a car crash on a highway in eastern New Orleans.

New Orleans police say it happened just after 9 a.m. Saturday.

NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports a preliminary investigation shows a pickup truck apparently crossed into oncoming traffic on the Highway 11 bridge flyover and collided head-on with a sedan traveling in the opposite direction.

The car's 34-year-old driver and the pregnant 29-year-old passenger were transported to a hospital, where both of them, as well as the unborn baby, were pronounced dead.

Louisiana State Police say a boat trailer came unhitched from a pickup truck and crossed the center line of a highway, slamming into another vehicle and killing the driver.

The agency says 49-year-old David Burvant of Slidell died at a hospital in Gonzales after the crash Monday afternoon on Louisiana Highway 18.

Trooper First Class Jesse LaGrange says in a news release that investigators were looking into why the boat trailer detached from the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado driven by 20-year-old Jeremiah Allee of St. Amant.
