Michael Franklin, 43, was pronounced dead at University Health Hospital, after sustaining injuries in a one-car accident around 6 p.m. Friday in the 6800 block of Bert Kouns near the Greenwood Road intersection.
Shreveport police officers reported that a 2000 model Chevrolet had apparently been traveling eastbound on Greenwood Road before it left the roadway for unknown reasons, rolled over, and came to rest on its roof.
Franklin was driving the vehicle. There was one passenger in the vehicle and he was transported to University Health Hospital as well. The extent of his injuries is unknown at this time.
Shreveport Police crash investigators immediately responded and, based on preliminary information and evidence gathered, believe speed may have been a factor but they are still working at this hour to definitively determine exactly what caused this crash.
