Louisiana State Police say an 11-year-old has expired after the speeding pickup truck he was driving hit a tree.
Trooper Glenn Younger says in a news release that just Clark James Davis was in the 1993 Ford Ranger if it moved off Louisiana Highway 802 roughly 4:15 a.m. Saturday in Webster Parish, approximately 5 miles (8 km) south of the Arkansas state line.
The release says the boy wasn’t wearing a seat belt and was ejected. It did not say why he had been driving at night.
Younger says Davis was from Webster Parish. In an email, he said the truck had been registered in Shongaloo, roughly 8 miles (3 kilometers) east of the accident website. He did not say who owned the truck.
Younger says investigators believe speed was a factor.
