A filmmaker working on the sequel to "Harold and Kumar" in Shreveport was killed late Tuesday in a motor vehicle accident in southeast Caddo Parish.
According to Caddo Parish sheriff's office spokeswoman Cindy Chadwick, the accident occurred on state Highway 1 near Frierson at 9:10 p.m. when a 1998 Honda Accord driven by Carol Trevino, 31, of Ohio, pulled out into the path of a southbound tractor-trailer rig.
Trevino was pinned in the wreckage and had to be extricated by members of Caddo Fire District 5 using the Jaws of Life.
She was taken by Life Air Rescue to LSU Hospital in Shreveport. She was pronounced dead at 10:20 p.m., hospital nursing supervisors said.
Caddo Parish 911 dispatch reports had a more specific location for the accident, the 10000 block of Highway 1 between between Douglas Attaway and Francis Bickham boulevards.
Trevino was working as an assistant to "Harold and Kumar 2" executive producers Greg Shapiro and Carsten Lorenz. Film cast members named to date include John Cho, Kal Penn, Neil Patrick Harris and Christopher Meloni.
Trevino worked as a writer, producer and director and also taught film, in one instance in New York City as a project facilitator for the LIFT project, a program designed to introduce inner city youth to film making. Trevino also had worked as a boom operator, sound mixer, assistant director and script consultant.
According to the International Movie Data Base, she also was an assistant director for the 2005 movie "Don't Tell" and was a writer for the 2005 movie "Times Like These."The Bossier City-based tractor-trailer rig was driven by Shamichael Snow, 26, of Shreveport, and was empty, Chadwick said.
