A lakebed in Doyline was the scene of a tragic accident Saturday evening.

Webster Parish Sheriff Jason Parker said 24-year-old William Tyrec Moore died when the Side-By-Side in which he was a passenger flipped.

“We got the call around 6:54 p.m. for 600 block of Hanson Rd.,” Parker said. “Moore was the only person injured and they airlifted him to Ocshner’s LSU where he was pronounced dead.”

Moore was from Dubberly.

Parker said when deputies arrived, the driver who was not injured had loaded his ATV and had left for the medical center in Shreveport.

“It was just a tragic accident,” Parker said.
