ALEXANDRIA — The son of Judge Kathy Johnson died Sunday morning of injuries he sustained in an accident last week.

Jarrett Barton, 27, died Sunday at the Rapides Regional Medical Center three days after a head-on collision with an 18-wheeler on Louisiana 28.

Barton’s 1992 Ford pickup apparently drifted across the center line and collided with an oncoming 1996 Peterbilt, according to a news release from the Louisiana State Police.

Barton is also the son of Thomas Barton of Jena, La.

His funeral will be 2 p.m. today at First Baptist Church in Jonesville.
