A Sunday afternoon crash on Hwy. 1 near KSLA Road claimed the life of a Shreveport man and sent three other people to the hospital.

Caddo Parish Sheriff Deputies responded to the two-vehicle crash just before 2:00 PM Sunday.

The Ranger's driver was flown by Life Air to University Health. Neither of their names have been released.

58-year-old Gary Harris was driving the F-150 with his wife, 54-year-old Violet, as passenger. The Vivian couple were taken by North Caddo Ambulance to University Health for treatment of their injuries.

The crash remains under investigation by the Caddo Sheriff's Traffic Safety Unit.
