The driver of the Explorer, the 13-year-old boy and another 19-year-old passenger were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Police say the 13-year-old girl, Antoinette Peters of Alexandria, died Monday.

The Nissan’s driver, 32-year-old Duane Chaldron Brown, was arrested. No one answered Monday evening at a telephone listing for Brown.
