Details Emerge on Late-Night Wreck
We’re learning more today about that wreck that bottled up traffic on I-220 in Bossier City late last night.
Bossier police say the wreck happened when a car cut in front of an 18-wheeler — making contact with the big rig’s front bumper. That caused the car to spin and strike the inside guardrail of the Benton Road overpass. 27-year-old Victoria Gillins of Shreveport was ejected from the car and received what police say appear to be life threatening injuries. Her three-year-old son, Loyal, was also injured along with the driver, 29-year-old Jim Ware of Shreveport. All three are being treated at LSU Hospital. The big rig’s driver wasn’t hurt. In addition to his injuries, Ware’s been issued citations for no seat belt, no chiild restraint, and no driver’s license.
