Twenty-one-year-old Courtney Guidry was killed when the vehicle she was riding in blew a tire and flipped several times near Sulphur, according to authorities. Her funeral is Wednesday, October 28 at 11 a.m. Visitation begins 2 hours earlier at 9 a.m. at King's Funeral Home in Lake Charles.

On Saturday, Preston Stoutes was killed on McCown Rd. when he lost control of his motorcycle and ran off the road. Visitation is at Hixson Funeral Home Wednesday (today) from 5 to 9 p.m. and on tomorrow (Thursday, October 22) from 8 a.m. until the service begins at 11 a.m.
