SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – The two Shreveport women killed in a motor vehicle collision on Youree Drive Saturday evening have been named by the Caddo Parish Coroner’s office.

Latonya M. Sibley, 52, was driving a 2010 Volvo at what Shreveport police say was a very high rate of speed north on Youree Drive when she veered into the southbound lane and crashed head-on into a 2014 Honda Accord driven by 31-year-old Kourtnie G. Richardson in the 5900 block of Youree Drive just before 9 p.m. Saturday.

Richardson was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, while Sibley was transported to Ochsner LSU Health hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries just moments after her arrival.

Both women were positively identified through fingerprint comparison.

Autopsies will be conducted at Ochsner LSU Health hospital.

The collision remains under investigation by the Shreveport Police Department, and toxicology samples were taken and will be submitted for analysis.
