From DPS Sgt Jean Dark
Monday night at 11:10, Troopers responded to a two-vehicle fatal crash eastbound IH-20 approximately eight miles east of Marshall in Harrison County. Preliminary crash reporting indicates that the driver of a 2013 Kenworth truck and towed semi-trailer, was traveling east on IH-20 in the right lane at the 625-mile marker when an eastbound Ford Edge struck the towed unit. The impact caused the edge to flip forward coming to rest upside down. The vehicle caught fire, killing the front passenger and the two rear passengers. Paramedics transported the driver to LSU Health in Shreveport in serious condition. The investigation is ongoing at this time, and no names are available for release until identifications are confirmed and next of kin notified.
