I-20 18-Wheeler Accident Tragically Kills Shreveport, Louisiana Woman


A woman from Shreveport, Louisiana, died tragically Wednesday evening after an 18-wheeler slammed into her vehicle along Interstate 20 in Webster Parish.

18-Wheeler Driver Failed to Slow for Congestion

The September 9th accident occurred at approximately 6:45 p.m. in the westbound lanes of I-20 around mile marker 44 near Dixie Inn.

According to the Louisiana State Police, the 35-year-old woman was heading west on I-20 when the driver of a 2000 International tractor-trailer failed to slow down for congestion and struck her 2017 Jeep SUV from behind. The passenger vehicle then slammed into the back of another 18-wheeler, overturned, and erupted in flames.

Although the young woman was wearing her seatbelt, she was pronounced dead at the scene from blunt force trauma.

Authorities Awaiting Toxicology Test Results

Paramedics transferred both truckers to a local hospital where they received treatment for moderate injuries.

The deadly accident shut down part of westbound Interstate 20 in Webster Parish for several hours.

The crash remains under investigation, and it’s not clear if the police intend to charge anyone in connection with the tragedy. Results of toxicology tests are pending.
