Shreveport Woman Killed in DeSoto Parish Crash
Frierson – On Thursday, August 18, 2022, just before 5:00 p.m., Troopers assigned to Louisiana State Police Troop G began investigating a one-vehicle fatality crash on I-49, just north of LA Hwy 175. This crash claimed the life of 54-year-old Tracey Shaver.
The initial investigation revealed a 2013 Ford F-150, driven by Shaver, was traveling north on I-49. For reasons still under investigation, Shaver exited the roadway and struck a bridge railing before overturning and ejecting the passenger from the vehicle. 
Both occupants were transported to Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport with life-threatening injuries.  Shaver was later pronounced dead at the hospital. Due to the extent of damage to the vehicle, the restraint use for both occupants is unknown at this time.
Impairment is not suspected to be a factor in this crash; however, routine toxicology samples were taken and submitted for analysis. This crash remains under investigation.
In 2022, Troop G has investigated 23 fatal crashes, resulting in 24 deaths.
