Shreveport, LA (August 15, 2019) – In the afternoon of Tuesday, August 13th a crash was reported involving two vehicles in N Shreveport. The Shreveport Police Department reported to the accident to provide aid and start an investigation into the collision. The incident took place on LA-1, also known as N Market Street, near Interstate 220.
Reports confirmed that the crash involved a motorcycle and a Dodge pickup truck. Authorities were notified of the crash at around noon. Reports from authorities at the scene claim that officials found a turned over motorcycle and a damaged pickup. The extent of the resulting injuries is unknown at this time.
The crash is under investigation by the Louisiana State Police. More details will be released as the investigation continues. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Speeding is a major factor in many crashes across the country, but Louisiana has a particularly high rate of crashes due to excessive speeds. Speeding killed 9,717 people in 2017, accounting for 26 percent of all traffic fatalities that year. Speed limits are intended to protect drivers from being seriously injured.
When a crash involves excessive speeds, victims are more likely to sustain severe injuries. This is because of the increased force in play during the crash. In some cases, victims can partner with a Baton Rouge car wreck attorney in order to obtain the compensation due to them.
