Jaws Of Life Used To Try To Save The Life Of A Homer Man

Jaws of life in action, auto.howstuffworks.com

Louisiana State Police Troop G investigated a one vehicle fatal crash on Harris Road, 3 miles south of US Highway 79 in Claiborne Parish, which claimed the life of a Homer man. 

According to investigating troopers, on July 17, 2012, at 3:18 p.m., a 2004 Ford F-250 driven by 46-year-old Bruce C. Dean of Homer, was traveling south on Harris Road at a high rate of speed when he lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle ran off the road, overturned, struck a fence,and came to rest on its roof. 

Deans was restrained during the crash and had to be extricated by The Homer Fire Department.  Dean was pronounced dead at the scene by the Claiborne Parish Coroner. 

Toxicology samples have been obtained and will be submitted for analysis.  This crash remains under investigation.

Excessive speed is suspected to be a factor in the crash.  Speeding reduces a driver’s ability to steer safely around curves or objects in the roadway, extends the distance necessary to stop a vehicle, and increases the distance a vehicle travels while the driver reacts to a dangerous situation.  Troopers encourage motorists to observe the speed limit and to drive in a safe and prudent manner.
