Allen Parish, LA -- January 19, 2017, Derrick and Porsha Williams, their child Palaisha, and Tyler Bamburg all died due to a head-on car accident.

Louisiana State Police investigated the fatal accident which occurred at around 10:00 a.m. east of Kinder.

According to their reports, 23-year-old Bamburg was traveling westbound on US Highway 190 in a Nissan Sentra. For reasons not yet confirmed, the Nissan crossed over the center line into the path of an oncoming Chevy Cobalt.

Authorities say they suspect that Bamburg was impaired at the time of the accident, though they did not specify with what substance. This has yet to be confirmed, and the crash remains under investigation.

No further details have been released at this time.
