A one-car crash on I-49 this morning claimed the life of the driver.


Shreveport Police patrol officers were dispatched to a car accident on Interstate 49, just north of the Pierremont/Hollywood exit just after 7:30 this morning (July 24, 2014).


Upon arrival, officers located a 2010 Chevrolet near the retaining wall just off the roadway with the driver lying near the guard rail. The driver was pronounced deceased at the scene.


Based on preliminary information gathered, crash investigators believe the vehicle was headed south on Interstate 49 when it left the roadway. Investigators are working at this hour to determine the cause of this crash. The name of the victim has not released, pending notification of family.
