Unrestrained Father and Son Killed DeSoto Crash

On August 29, 2020, around 3:30 p.m., Louisiana State Police Troop G responded to a fatal crash on Louisiana Highway 191 near Fisher Lane. This crash claimed the lives of a father and son.

The preliminary investigation revealed a John Deere Gator ATV, driven by 92-year-old James Booker of Mansfield, was attempting to enter Louisiana Highway 191 from a private drive. For reasons still under investigation, Booker failed to yield to a northbound 2016 Kia Optima and traveled into its path. This resulted in a collision between the two vehicles.

Gov. Edwards Signs Order Extending Phase Two Until September 11

Gov. John Bel Edwards signed an order on August 26 that extends Phase Two and the statewide mask mandate, closure of bars to on-site consumption and gathering size limits in Louisiana for another two weeks, until September 11, 2020. Despite progress in slowing the spread of COVID-19 in the state, The White House Coronavirus Task Force still has Louisiana in the red zone for new cases, just as schools and colleges return to campus and Hurricane Laura is set to impact the state. Further, almost half of the state’s parishes have positivity rates in excess of 10 percent.

The Governor’s current order expires on Friday, August 28. He signed a new order today.
