Caddo Sheriff’s deputies are investigating a traffic fatality that occurred this morning on Mira Myrtis Road in the northern part of the parish, said Sheriff Steve Prator.   

About 7:45 a.m., a 29-year-old Vivian woman was eastbound in a Ford Explorer when a log truck and trailer turning off Hosston Rodessa Road pulled in front of her vehicle atop a hill. Her vehicle then struck the back of the trailer.

The woman died at the scene. Her two passengers, ages 9 and 5, were taken by ambulance to Ochsner LSU Health with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the log truck has been identified as Dezmon Love, 44, of Bivens, Texas. He was issued a traffic citation for violation of LA RS 32:124 (vehicle entering highway from private road, alley, driveway, or building) while the crash remains under investigation by the Caddo Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division.
