Rollover wreck claims the life of one; sends several to hospital

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La. -

A rollover wreck in Shreveport sent six people to the hospital and killed another.

It happened just before 5:30 p.m. in the 9300 block of Woolworth Road in front of Walnut Hill Elementary. Three vehicles were involved in the crash and six people were transported to area hospitals.

Authorities say that a northbound 2004 GMC Envoy crossed the center line and hit a southbound 2014 Nissan Altima. The GMC Envoy rolled over and slid more than 500 feet. The driver of the Nissan then lost control and was struck by a northbound 2007 Chevy Trailblazer.

The driver of the Nissan, 23 year-old Jonne Dixon of Shreveport, was taken to LSUHSC by LifeAir where she later died. The driver of the GMC Envoy, 24 year-old Kimberly Estes of Keithville, and three children in her car were taken to LSUHSC by ambulance with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the Trailblazer, 27 year-old Ashley Wimberly of Keithville, and her passenger 36 year-old Billy Flowers of Shreveport, were both taken to Willis-Knighton Bossier with non-life threatening injuries.

The accident remains under investigation.
