UPDATE:  This afternoon, the Caddo Parish Sheriff's office released the following information -- the driver killed in Friday's crash is Willie Roy Jackson, 57, of Kaufman, TX.  His passenger, Lisa L. Mallard, 44, of Dallas was injured.

One person is dead after a major accident on I-20.

It happened around 7:15 p.m. Friday evening on I-20 eastbound just west of mile marker 3 in Greenwood. Caddo Sheriff's Office tells KTBS 3 News that the Greenwood Police Department was working a minor accident along I-20 and traffic was stopped on the roadway. Authorities say an 18-wheeler rear ended an Jaguar that was stopped, pushing the Jaguar into another 18-wheeler in front of it. 

The driver of the Jaguar was air lifted to University Health in Shreveport and later died. A passenger in the Jaguar was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital and is in stable condition.

Both eastbound lanes are shutdown from Waskom, Texas exit to Highway 169. Harrison County authorities and Waskom Police are diverting traffic to Highway 80.

No names have been released.
