Tim Parker, public information officer for the Ruston Police Department, said three cars heading north were stopped at the red light at the intersection of U.S. 167 and Kentucky Avenue when a 2000 Chevy Tahoe driven by Hunter Sharp, 24, of Sterlington, also traveling north, allegedly failed to stop and hit the car in front of him.
