Bossier Parish – On Monday, February 6, 2023, just after 7:30 a.m., Troopers assigned to Louisiana State Police  Troop G began investigating a one-vehicle serious injury crash on I-20, west of LA Hwy 157. This crash  ultimately claimed the life of an unrestrained six-year-old, India Moore. 

The initial investigation revealed that a 2008 Buick Lucerne, driven by 30-year-old Trodarian Moore of Minden,  was traveling west on I-20. For reasons still under investigation, Moore exited the roadway and struck a tree. 

Trodarion was not restrained. Both occupants were transported to Ochsner LSU Health in Shreveport with life threatening injuries.  

This afternoon, Troop G was notified that India had succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead at LSU  Ochsner Health in Shreveport. 

Impairment is suspected to be a factor in this crash. Routine toxicology samples were taken and submitted for  analysis. The crash remains under investigation. 

Motorists must be reminded that alcohol and other drugs have many effects on the body. Alcohol and other drugs  can impair visual ability, alter the sense of time and space, impair fine motor skills needed to operate a motor  vehicle, and decrease reaction times. Louisiana Law requires all motorists be restrained, regardless of seating  position or length of trip. 

In 2023, Troop G has investigated six fatal crashes, resulting in six deaths.
