2 Die In Head On Collision

Two people are dead after a head on collision in San Augustine county Sunday morning.

The accident occurred on highway 96, about 7 miles south of San Augustine.

DPS officials say 52-year-old Russell Buntyn of Bridge City attempted to pass a car in a no passing zone. Troopers say he then struck another vehicle head-on driven by 66-year-old David Lejune of Vidor.

Both Lejune and Buntyn died at the scene.

Their deaths make four people who have died this weekend involving auto accidents in East Texas. Franklin Keys of Brookland and Eugene Berry of Nacogdoches both died in separate accidents Saturday.
