LSP unit rear-ends, kills 2 while responding to crash in Monroe
MONROE, La. (WAFB) - Two backseat passengers in a car died after a Louisiana State Police (LSP) unit rear-ended them in Monroe, Louisiana.
An LSP spokesperson says a fully-marked Chevy Tahoe driven by Tpr. Kaleb Reeves, son of Col. Kevin Reeves, was responding to another crash at the time of the collision. Police say the Kia Forte rotated and struck a large metal signal pole along the rear driver’s side.
The deceased rear-seat passengers are identified as 11-year-old An-Janne Lindsey and 18-year-old Kajenne Lindsey, both of Monroe.
Information released by LSP says the crash happened around 7 p.m. Thursday, October 1, on U.S. Hwy 165. It also says the driver and front-seat passenger had moderate injuries treated at the hospital.
Impairment is not suspected to be a factor in the crash. Trooper Reeves submitted to a breath alcohol test showing no impairment.
The crash remains under investigation.
