Man Dies in Crash on Linwood
One man has died in a single vehicle crash in the southern part of Caddo Parish. The wreck happened just after 5:30pm Monday on Linwood near Tyre Road. The deadly crash involved a pickup truck that was headed south at a high speed.
The truck flipped and the driver was ejected. He was pinned under the truck. The victim is identified as 31-year-old Jimmy Lee Holland of Wallace Lake Road in Shreveport.
Sheriff's Lt. James Houston said the driver had been at a convenience store on Linwood Avenue shortly before the crash. A deputy was called there for a disturbance involving a man with a gun. When the deputy arrived, the man jumped into his truck and fled.
Deputies Alvin Slay and Britton Leblanc arrived at the scene of the crash and attempted CPR on the man, who was partially pinned beneath his vehicle. The local Fire District also arrived and rendered aid; however, the man was deceased at the scene.
Release of the man's name is pending family notification by the Caddo Coroner's Office.
