Two men died Sunday morning from injuries sustained in separate automobile crashes.
Davis Luke Smith, 18, died at North Mississippi Medical Center. He had been injured eleven days earlier when he apparently lost control of the flatbed delivery truck he was driving on Miss. Hwy. 32 near Van Vleet. The crash occurred on the afternoon of July 8.
Jeffrey S. Bruce, 20, died from massive head trauma at the scene of a one-car crash that occurred on Culver Road early Sunday morning, said Itawamba County Coroner Shirley Davis. Two other occupants of the vehicle were injured but no further information was available on their condition or the cause of the crash.
