Toddler struck and killed by truck in Minden


A 3-year-old girl is dead after being hit by a man driving a pick-up truck in Minden.

It happened around 11:30 a.m. in front of a home on Morrow Street near Bayou Avenue.

According to Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper, a man driving a 2006 Chevrolet pick-up with oversized tires was unable to see over the hood of the truck when he struck and killed the child. Cropper said the driver didn't know the child was there.

Police think the child is a Shreveport resident who was being watched by a woman at the Minden home while her mother was at work.

Cropper said the investigation is ongoing, but it is believed the child's death will be ruled accidental.
