Unrestrained child killed in single car crash

 Webster Parish  Around 4:15 a.m. this morning, Louisiana State Police Troop G responded to a one-vehicle crash on LA 802, about 2.5 miles east of US 371, that claimed the life of a Webster Parish boy. 

 

The preliminary investigation revealed that a 1993 Ford Ranger pick-up truck driven by 11-year-old Clark James Davis was traveling at a high rate of speed on LA 802, when, for reasons still under investigation, the vehicle ran off the road and struck a tree.

Davis was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.  He sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Webster Parish Coroner’s Office.  No one else was in the vehicle at the time of the crash.

Impairment is not suspected. Speed is suspected to be a factor in this crash.  The crash remains under investigation.

Here’s an interesting thought. Why is it that Louisiana and neighboring state Mississippi are always on the bottom of every national ranking involving virtually every aspect of a state’s quality of life? Yet casino gambling is widespread throughout both states at a level not found any place else in America outside of Las Vegas.

On April 28, citizens of Shreveport face a choice: Fund basic city services or plunge the city into fiscal chaos. It would have been inconceivable 20 years ago that routine tax renewals to fund the fire and police departments and other basic city services would not have the collective support of the city’s business, civic and political leadership.
