Caddo Parish, La — Authorities have released the names of two young men tragically killed in a one-vehicle crash Thursday morning.
At around 4:25 a.m., officers were dispatched to the 6700 block of South Lake Shore Drive, just west of Risinger Drive to a major crash involving one vehicle.
Police learned that a car heading northwest on South Lakeshore Drive left the roadway for unknown reasons and hit a tree. The two passengers, identified as Richard Calderas, 17, and Rene Calderas, 16, both of Caddo Parish, were pronounced dead at the scene. Officers were forced to close a section of South Lakeshore Drive between Pines Road and Risinger Drive for a short period of time, but that section of the roadway was soon re-opened to traffic.
Investigators believe speed may have been a factor, but they are still working at this hour to determine what caused this crash.
