BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) - Authorities in Louisiana say a 9-year-old girl was killed in a single-vehicle crash while the driver was suffering from an unknown medical condition.

News outlets cite reports from Bossier City police and firefighters as saying Brooklyn Dunn died at the scene of the crash on Arthur Ray Teague Parkway Saturday night.

The 39-year-old man driving was suffering from a condition when the crash happened. He and a 5-year-old girl who was also in the car were taken to a hospital and are in stable condition with minor injuries.
