Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Deputies, Louisiana State Police, Robeline Police, and Natchitoches Regional Medical Center EMS responded to a two-vehicle injury crash on La. Hwy 6 West, east of Robeline Feb. 7 at 6:44 a.m.

Both operators of the 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt and 1991 Chevrolet Silverado were transported by EMS to Natchitoches Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
Both vehicles were traveling eastbound on LA 6 near Johnny Floyd Rd. when the 1991 Chevrolet Silverado stopped for a westbound school bus that was picking up children. The Cobalt, which was traveling behind the Silverado, struck the rear end of the pick up truck.

The school bus warning signals were activated at the time of the crash.
Deputies remind motorists during early morning and afternoon commutes, pay attention to the roadway, avoid driver distractions, and be mindful of school buses stopping on area roadways picking up and unloading school children.
