BOSSIER CITY - Caddo Parish sheriff's deputies say the body of a man missing since he was knocked off the Shreveport-Barksdale Bridge into the Red River has been found.

Twenty-three-year-old Kevin Deleon was one of 5 people pushing a small pickup truck that had run out of gas on the bridge when it was struck by a full-sized pickup truck around 4:30 a.m. Thursday.

Police say the collision caused Deleon, of Bossier City, to go over the side of the bridge into the river.
