Victim of single-car accident succumbs

PRESS RELEASE

Shreveport Police Department

Shreveport police have released the name of a Bossier City man who died Sunday morning following a single-vehicle crash that occurred along a stretch of Clyde Fant Parkway last Friday, May 17.

Just before 6 p.m., Shreveport police were called to the 1800 block of Clyde Fant Parkway in reference to a single-vehicle accident that occurred just off the roadway.

Upon arrival at the scene, officers found the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, identified as 39-year-old Brett Shoebridge, still inside his 2007 Hyuundai Santa Fe SUV, which, after flipping, had come to rest on its roof.

Shoebridge was transported by Shreveport Fire Department personnel to LSUHSC with what were described as potentially lifethreatening injuries.

On Sunday, authorities were informed that Shoebridge succumbed to the injuries he sustained during the accident.

While the crash remains under investigation and no exact cause has been determined, evidence recovered at the scene suggests that speed may have been a causative factor in the accident.
