A motorist from Franklinton was booked with DWI after causing a head-on collision Tuesday night on Louisiana 25 north of Covington, State Police said.

The driver of the second vehicle was identified as Steven Wallace, 59, of Abita Springs. Wallace, who was wearing a seat belt, received minor injuries and refused on-scene medical treatment, police said.
