The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate reports Jordan was driving southbound when an oncoming pickup truck crossed the center line and smashed into Jordan's vehicle head-on.

The impact pushed Jordan's vehicle into a 3rd car. That driver suffered minor injuries.

State police said the driver of the truck that crashed into Jordon was also injured an taken to a hospital.

Authorities are still investigating the crash.
