SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – A Benton man is facing charges in connection with the rollover crash that killed Plain Dealing native and Captain Shreve assistant football coach Logan Allen Sunday morning.

Allen was thrown from the truck and suffered life-threatening injuries. He later died at the hospital. The second passenger was also injured, but is expected to survive.

Stephens was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center late Sunday night on charges of negligent homicide, vehicular negligent injuring, and hit-and-run driving. Bond is set at $35,000.
