Two killed in fatal crash in Highland

A man and a woman were killed Wednesday morning in a one-vehicle crash in Shreveport’s Highland neighborhood.

Just after midnight, Shreveport police patrol officers were dispatched to a major crash at the intersection of Robinson Place and Creswell Avenue.

Upon arrival, officers discovered a Chevrolet pickup truck that had left the roadway and struck a large tree on the north side of Robinson Place.

The vehicle subsequently caught fire. Officials with the Shreveport Fire Department were already on the scene and extinguished the flames.

Authorities discovered a man and a woman in the truck, both of whom were pronounced dead at the scene.

Based on preliminary information gathered by crash investigators, police believe the vehicle was headed east on Robinson Place when it left the roadway. Investigators are working to determine the cause of this crash.

The victims have been officially identified as Megan Rogers, 19, and Blake Fritz, 20.
