Tire failure is to blame for a wreck that killed a Shreveport man.

The crash happened just before 2 p.m. Friday, on Interstate 20 near mile marker 40, just east of the Goodwill Road exit.

According to a preliminary investigation by Louisiana State Police, a mobile oil well work over rig driven by 36-year-old Christopher Henderson was traveling east along I-20 when the vehicle experienced tire failure.

The vehicle then exited the roadway and traveled into the median where it overturned and crushed the cab of the vehicle. Henderson sustained fatal injuries during the crash, troopers said.

The Webster Parish Coroner pronounced Henderson dead at the scene.

Impairment is not suspected, troopers said, but a toxicology sample was obtained, and will be submitted for analysis. The crash remains under investigation.
