6th District Caddo Commissioner Herschel Brown was killed this morning in an automobile accident.
The accident occurred just after 11 a.m. when his westbound Buick left the pavement between the Kingston Road overpass and Mansfield Road, tumbled across the median and an embankment and struck a tree, police spokesman Cpl. Bill Goodin said.
Brown was taken to LSU Hospital in Shreveport, where he was pronounced dead at 11:47 a.m., supervisors there said.
His 84-year-old mother, Charlie Mae Brown Jack, who was his passenger, was taken to Christus Schumpert Medical Center in Shreveport for treatment of abrasions and injuries police said were not life-threatening.
