Fatal Crash in Webster Parish

 On June 18, 2013, at 8:02 p.m., Troopers assigned to Louisiana State Police Troop G responded to a single vehicle fatal crash on Louisiana Highway 518 east of U.S. Highway 79.

The preliminary investigation revealed that a 2009 Toyota Camry, driven by 18-year-old Joshua Shine of Minden, was traveling east on Louisiana Highway 518 at a high rate of speed when it drove off the road and struck a tree.

Shine was properly restrained. Shine suffered fatal injuries as a result of the crash and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Webster Parish Coroner’s Office.

Alcohol use is not suspected. A routine toxicology sample was obtained from Shine and will be submitted for analysis. The crash remains under investigation.

Speeding reduces a driver’s ability to steer safely around curves or objects in the roadway, extends the distance necessary to stop a vehicle, and increases the distance a vehicle travels while the driver reacts to a dangerous situation. Troopers encourage motorists to observe the speed limit and to drive in a safe and prudent manner.

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught. The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.

It was much to my amazement that literally hundreds of Ukrainian girls were actually interested in me. Throughout each day, I would receive e-mails from the agency, with each e-mail sending a message from a woman interested in dating me.
