Rodessa man dies following fiery crash

Thursday, July 14, 2011 - 1:47pm

A man involved in a fiery crash in north Caddo Parish earlier this week has died at a local hospital, said Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator.

Jimmy Clark, 63, of Rodessa, had been receiving treatment at a local hopsital where he was airlifted after the crash on Tuesday. The Caddo Sheriff's Office was notified by the Caddo Coroner's Office today that Clark had died.

Clark was driving a 2007 Corvette northbound on Hwy. 71 at a high rate of speed, according to witnesses, when he side-swiped a southbound dump truck. Clark lost control and veered into the southbound lane where he hit a second vehicle driven by Sue Williams (no d.o.b. available) of Ida. Williams' F-150 pick-up caught fire, and she was pulled from the burning vehicle by passing motorists. She was also airlifted to a local hospital. The driver of the dump truck was not injured.

The crash remains under investigation by the Caddo Sheriff's Traffic Safety Unit.
