A two-vehicle crash on Louisiana Highway 33 near Frazier Road on Monday afternoon caused minor injuries and sent one vehicle into the woods.
According to reports from the Louisiana State Police, Stephen Turner, 55, of Ruston, was driving a 2003 Toyota Tundra when he collided with Duane Hale, 55, of El Dorado, Ark., who was driving a 2011 Ford F-150. Hale’s vehicle wound up on the side of the road with its bed in the trees, while Turner’s truck sat with damage to the passenger side.
Ruston City Council members made decisions on the future of several structures at Monday night’s regular meeting, including one of their own.
Lewis Love, city administrator, said more than 300 structures have been demolished or hauled off in the last four years.
“I keep thinking we will have them all, and they just keep coming,” Love said. “They were all basically falling down. The structures were an eyesore and safety hazard with possible illegal activities going on inside them. I think they will keep coming — hopefully not at this level.”
