Authorities are investigating a fatality crash that occurred this afternoon in west Shreveport.
At approximately 2:15 p.m., Shreveport police officers were dispatched to West Bert Kouns Industrial Loop at its intersection with Greenwood Road relative to a major crash involving two eighteen-wheelers. Upon arrival, officers learned that an eighteen-wheeler had apparently been traveling westbound on Greenwood Road approaching West Bert Kouns Industrial Loop when it veered off of the roadway and struck another big rig on West Bert Kouns Loop, turning it on its side. The driver of the truck that left the roadway was pronounced deceased at the scene while the other driver was transported to a local hospital by the Shreveport Fire Department with what have been described as minor injuries.
Shreveport Police crash investigators were immediately dispatched and are working at this time to determine what caused this crash. West Bert Kouns Industrial Loop just south of Greenwood Road will be closed for some time as crews work to remove the vehicles and trailers from the roadway.
