Crash Claims The Life Of 82-Year-Old Man

A two-vehicle crash on Keithville-Springridge Road left one man dead and another behind bars.

It all happened in the early evening hours of Wednesday, March 15. Witnesses say that just after 6 p.m., 82-year-old Joe Waddles of Keithville was traveling westbound on Keithville-Springridge Road in a 2006 Toyota Solara when he attempted a left turn onto Farmridge Road. That’s when his vehicle was struck by a 2004 Chevy Silverado driven by 19-year-old Rory LaBorde of Keithville.

According to the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office, LaBorde’s truck was among several vehicles that were behind Waddles also traveling westbound. A press release from the Sheriff’s Office tells us what they think happened:

LaBorde drove into the opposing lane of traffic in a no passing zone at a high rate of speed and struck the driver’s side of Waddles’ vehicle as Waddles was turning left, according to Traffic Safety investigator Sgt. Mike Vaitkus. The Solara traveled off the roadway and flipped onto its driver’s side into a ditch. Waddles was deceased at the scene. LaBorde was arrested by the Caddo Sheriff’s Office for negligent homicide and was expected to be booked into Caddo Correctional Center after being examined at University Health.

The crash is under investigation by the Caddo Sheriff’s Office Traffic Safety Unit.
