A Shreveport man has been arrested for a hit and run that left a pedestrian seriously injured. The crash happened early Saturday morning.
Jeremy Jackson, 26, of Shreveport was busted on one count each of felony hit and run, expired registration, driving under suspension and driving without insurance. He was booked into the Shreveport City Jail.
Sgt. Bill Goodin says police were dispatched to the 300 block of West Bert Kouns just after midnight to a crash with injuries.
Officers found James Nance, 27, suffering extensive injuries. Nance’s left leg had been severed just below the knee and he was taken to LSU Health by the Shreveport Fire Department. He is expected to survive.
Investigators say a 2007 Chevy truck driven by Jackson was east bound on West Bert Kouns Industrial Loop when it hit Nance. They believe Nance may have been walking in the roadway. Goodin says Jackson kept on driving, but came back a short time later and told police he thought he had hit some debris.
