Lake Charles couple killed in auto accident

McCOMB (AP) - A Louisiana couple was killed in a one-vehicle accident on U.S. 98 in Pike County, authorities said Friday.

The accident occurred Thursday, said County Coroner Percy Pittman. Pittman said he was able to contact relatives who told him that Tommy G. Taylor, 71, and his wife, Emogene N. Taylor, 69, both of Lake Charles, La., had left home to flee Hurricane Rita.

A passenger in the sports utility vehicle, identified as Garcia Ramirez Bogata, 25, whose address was listed as McNeese State University, was treated and released from Southwest Mississippi Medical Center in McComb and returned to a shelter in the city, Pittman and the Highway Patrol said.
