SMITHVILLE, Miss. (AP) - An ATV accident has claimed the life of a Smithville teenager.

Monroe County Coroner Alan Gurley tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (https://bit.ly/1h8c7a5 ) 16-year-old Clay Lee Thompson was driving a four-wheeler westbound on Pearce Chapel Road Sunday night when he lost control and ran into the woods and down an embankment.

Gurley says there was another teen on the four-wheeler who went for help. The passenger went to a nearby residence and called the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department.

He says deputies were able to locate the wreckage and found the body of Thompson, who died at the scene from a head injury.
