Unrestrained child killed in single car crash

 Webster Parish  Around 4:15 a.m. this morning, Louisiana State Police Troop G responded to a one-vehicle crash on LA 802, about 2.5 miles east of US 371, that claimed the life of a Webster Parish boy. 

 

The preliminary investigation revealed that a 1993 Ford Ranger pick-up truck driven by 11-year-old Clark James Davis was traveling at a high rate of speed on LA 802, when, for reasons still under investigation, the vehicle ran off the road and struck a tree.

Davis was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.  He sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Webster Parish Coroner’s Office.  No one else was in the vehicle at the time of the crash.

Impairment is not suspected. Speed is suspected to be a factor in this crash.  The crash remains under investigation.

Here we go again with meddling federal judges. The 5 th U.S Circuit Court of Appeals came down hard on Louisiana charter schools last week. Charter schools, that by definition are independent with major input from parents, now will have to bargain with teachers’ unions.

The Supreme Court of old was more majestic with few periods of confrontation. Just a decade ago, twothirds of Americans had great confidence in the Court. No more. There’s trouble brewing in those marble temple walls. Confidence in the workings of the court and the Justices themselves have dropped to a mere 50 percent approval rating.
