Pedestrian struck by several vehicles, killed; N Market traffic diverted
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - A woman is dead following an incident where they were hit by several vehicles on the morning of Friday, Sept. 24.
Officers got the call just after 6 a.m. to N Market Street between Booth Drive and Deer Park Road. Police say it’s likely an 18-wheeler hit the woman first, then several other vehicles hit her until a driver stopped and called 911.
People tell KSLA that this stretch of road is known to be dangerous for pedestrians due to heavy traffic and speeding. They say many times people will try to run across the street, thinking they have enough time to miss traffic but end up getting hit.
Officers are canvassing the area to check surveillance video of the incident. The incident is under investigation and police are currently looking for the driver of the 18-wheeler.
