Two people died Sunday night after a car driving the wrong way on a highway near Cabot hit another vehicle head-on, troopers said.

The Nissan collided head-on with a southbound 2015 Cadillac at about 8:30 p.m., the report states.

Troopers said Tighe and a passenger in the Nissan, 35-year-old Wayne Young of North Little Rock, were pronounced dead as a result of the crash.
