OPSO Investigating Death Of Infant And Separate Wreck Involving Mother


Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Investigators are currently investigating the death of a 3 month old infant.  Deputies responded to the Ouachita Fire Dept. Station on Blankston Road at approx. 11:30 pm.  Wednesday evening. 


The child was at that location receiving medical attention and was transported to a local hospital where she later died.  The child’s parents stated they found the child unresponsive, called 911 for medical assistance and then brought the child to the fire station for medical attention pending the arrival of the ambulance.  An investigation into the death is being conducted and autopsy results are pending.


Once arriving at the fire station, the mother of the child then left the child undergoing treatment to return home to retrieve personal items.  While doing so, she lost control of her vehicle and struck a utility pole.  The mother sustained critical injuries and was air lifted to a Shreveport hospital for treatment.  OPSO is conducting the investigation of the vehicle accident.
