Two people have died following a crash in east Shreveport Friday night.
Shreveport police say officers were called to the 4000 blk. of Hilry Huckaby Hwy, just east of I-220 just before 10 p.m. for a report of a major crash involving two vehicles.
They arrived to find that a 2001 model Chevy Malibu had, for unknown reasons, left the roadway. The driver, Jasmine Short, 19, then re-entered the roadway and entered into oncoming traffic and struck another vehicle, a 2006 Kia Sorento driven by Denise Jones.
Short was pronounced dead at the scene. Her passenger, Nasasha Booker, 20, was transported to University Heath Hospital where she later died.
The driver of the Kia, Denise Jones, was taken to University Health for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Shreveport Police crash investigators are still working to definitively determine exactly what caused this crash.
