Authorities investigating fatal vehicle crash

Shreveport police crash investigators are working a singlevehicle fatality crash that occurred Sunday morning on Interstate 20.

At approximately 6:49 a.m.

Sunday, Shreveport police patrol officers were dispatched to Inter state 20 West just west of the Fairfield Avenue exit ramp in reference to a major crash.

Upon arrival, officers discovered that a 1999 Ford Mustang that had been traveling west on the interstate apparently left the roadway for unknown reasons and then struck a concrete overpass near Stoner Avenue.

The driver of the Ford, identified as 24-year-old Gregory Schackelford of Bossier City, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Crash investigators arrived on the scene a short time later and took measurements, interviewed witnesses and gathered other evidence pertinent to the crash.

They are working to determine what caused the crash.
