SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A man brought to LSU Health Shreveport on Monday following a car crash in Union Parish has yet to be identified. Now, the hospital and police are asking for help.

The man was a passenger in a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by 28-year-old Dennis Lowery of Downsville. Louisiana State Police say Lowery lost control in a curve while trying to pass a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee in no-passing zone heading south on LA 15 in Union Parish at about 9:30 p.m. Monday night.

State Police investigators say Lowery overcorrected and swerved back into the roadway, where the driver of the Jeep he was trying to pass was unable to avoid hitting him. The driver of the 1996 Jeep, identified as 52-year-old Susan Cox of Downsville, received minor injuries in the crash.

Both Lowery and the unidentified passenger were thrown from the vehicle. Lowery was pronounced dead at the scene.

The unidentified patient is a black male, approximately 21 years of age and about 6 feet tall. He does not have any visible tattoos. It is believed his name could be Mike and he is possibly from Monroe.

If you know who this might be, please contact State Police Troop F at 318-345-0000 immediately.
