Mother identifies teen who died after falling from truck on Clyde Fant Parkway
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - A teenager is dead after falling out of a moving vehicle on Clyde Fant Parkway.
The teen’s mother has identified him as Kristian Darden, 18. She says he was hanging from the tailgate of a truck when the driver began to fishtail. That’s when Darden lost his grip and fell from the truck, hitting the back of his head on the pavement. She says he had a brain bleed and was declared braindead Sunday. He died Oct. 31, she says.
This all happened just before 1 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 29 in the 1800 block of Clyde Fant Memorial Parkway.
The teen’s mother says Darden was an organ donor, so his body was flown to Covington for organ harvesting with the Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency (LOPA).
