Just after 7pm on Mother's Day Louisiana State Troopers were called to the scene of an accident on Louisiana Highway 154, west of Louisiana Highway 4. Upon arrival Troopers discovered a 2 vehicle crash that claimed the life of 19-year-old Taylor Weaver of Castor.

The investigation revealed that a 2009 Honda Accord, driven by Weaver, was traveling westbound on Louisiana Highway 154. At the same time, a 2015 Freightliner truck was traveling eastbound on Louisiana Highway 154.

For reasons under investigation, Weaver lost control of her vehicle and crossed the centerline which resulted in a collision with the Freightliner truck. Weaver was not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash, and sustained fatal injuries from the accident.

Although impairment is not a suspected factor, toxicology samples were taken and will be submitted for analysis.  This crash remains under investigation.

Troopers would like to remind all motorists that while not all crashes are survivable, buckling your seatbelt makes your chance of survival far greater, should you be involved in a crash.  Also, avoiding driving distracted and obeying all posted speed limits can prevent crashes from occurring.

In 2021, Troop G Troopers have investigated seven fatal crashes resulting in seven fatalities.

The Shreveport Police Department Won't Be Responding To These Calls Anymore
