Strong storms that moved through Louisiana overnight led to the death of a 2-year-old girl, the Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office said.
A large tree fell on a recreational vehicle parked at the Hill Crest Mobile Home & RV Park in Haughton at approximately 12:30 a.m. Saturday, police said. A photo taken at the scene shows that the tree crushed the RV, splitting it in two.
A 2-year-old girl sleeping in the vehicle was killed. The other occupants, four adults and a 15-month-old child, were not injured, police said.
The Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office said there were numerous reports of downed trees on homes and roadways in the area.
