Driver identified in fatal North Caddo Parish wreck

Posted: Updated:

The driver in a deadly one-car wreck on the 4th of July in northern Caddo Parish has been identified as 29-year-old Johnny C. Johnson.

Crash scene investigators say Johnson lost control of his 2002 Ford Explorer around 7:30 Wednesday night while headed south in the 13000 block of Boyter Lane and crashed into several mailboxes before plowing into a pasture and a fence.

That sent a metal pole flying into a nearby home before the vehicle came to rest nearby.

Life Air was called in to transport Johnson to the hospital, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

No one was home at the time of the accident, and the home was not damaged. Johnson's address is listed as Boyter Lane.

The Caddo Sheriff's Office Traffic Safety Unit is investigating.
