Troopers assigned to Louisiana State Police Troop F responded to a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 20 shortly after 12:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Camp Road exit that claimed the life of a West Monroe man.
The preliminary investigation revealed that a 2011 Harley-Davidson driven by 36-year-old Christopher S. Biddle, of West Monroe, entered Interstate 20 from the Camp Road exit traveling west in the wrong direction when it was struck head-on by a 1998 Kenworth Conventional 18-wheeler driven by 52-year-old Marquita Wolverton, of Ashland, Ohio, that was traveling east on Interstate 20 in the right lane. Biddle was ejected from the motorcycle.

SIMSBORO — The U.S. Postal Service first announced in late December that effective Jan. 26, services would be suspended at the Simsboro Post Office, because they could not come to an acceptable lease negotiation with the building owner.

On Monday at the monthly Simsboro Town Hall meeting, Mayor Willie Hendricks announced that the Simsboro Post Office would not be closing after all.
