Shreveport man killed in Bienville Parish crash

BIENVILLE PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

Louisiana State Police are investigating a one-vehicle crash that killed a Shreveport man Saturday afternoon.

It happened just before 3 p.m. Saturday on LA 154 about six miles south of LA 4 in Bienville Parish.

State police say the 1996 Chevrolet Suburban driven by 48-year-old Randy Johnson was heading west on LA 154 in a left-hand curve when it went off the right side of the road. They say Johnson overcorrected to the left, lost control and went off the left side of the road. Then, they say Johnson overcorrected again, this time to the right, crossing back over the roadway and going off the right side of the road.

According to state police, Johnson was not wearing a seatbelt, and was ejected during the crash. He was taken by Life Air Rescue to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Speed is suspected to be a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation. As part of that investigation, a toxicology sample was also taken for analysis.
