A man killed Friday, September 6, 2019, in a collision involving a tractor-trailer and a train has been named by the Caddo Parish Coroner’s office.

According to police investigators, Dominique was walking beside a moving train crossing West 70th Street when an 18-wheeler crossed the railroad tracks and was struck by the moving train. The collision caused the truck’s trailer to pivot, pinning Dominique against the train.

An autopsy has been ordered at Ochsner LSU Health.
The incident remains under investigation by the Shreveport Police Department, to which interested media should direct further inquiries.
