Shreveport child hit by truck, dies from injuries

Thursday, December 29, 2011 - 6:42pm

UPDATE: The driver in the accident has been identified as 34-year old Kevin Currey of Shreveport. Police have determined that alcohol was not a factor in the deadly accident, but Currey had three local traffic warrants outstanding for his arrest.

Currey was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on those warrants for general speed, no proof of insurance, and expired inspection sticker. The warrants are not related to this crash.

A 5-year old girl has died after she was hit by a truck Thursday afternoon in Shreveport.

Officials say the child was riding her bike in the 600 block of Robinson place when it happened. They tell KMSS, a painter doing a job backed out of a driveway into her. Neighbors tell FOX 33 that the girl's mother may have seen the accident.

Authorities have not identified the driver or the girl.

Investigators continue to look into the accident.
