SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – The Caddo Parish Coroner’s Office has released the name of a Shreveport man who was killed in a crash Friday morning on I-220.
According to the coroner’s office, 68-year-old John Tillman died in a two-car collision that happened at 10:41 a.m. in the eastbound lanes at the Lakeshore Drive exit. The crash involved a Honda Accord and a GMC pickup truck.
The Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office says the Honda Accord was in the inside lane on I-220 when Tillman merged onto the interstate’s outer lane from Lakeshore Drive. At that time, the Honda had a tire blowout and its driver lost control, hitting the Tillman’s pickup truck. Tillman then lost control of his vehicle and the truck flipped over. He died at the scene.
An autopsy has been ordered through Ochsner LSU Health hospital. The crash is still under investigation.
