Teen in wreck dies; 1 still in hospital

VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - A 14-year-old Vicksburg youth has died from injuries suffered in a Sunday night accident in Warren County.

County Coroner Doug Huskey tells the Vicksburg Post ( ) that Brice Bishop died Tuesday of a brain injury at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson.

UMMC spokesman Matt Westerfield says Brice's brother, 13-year-old Bailey Chance Bishop, is in critical condition.

Authorities say the brothers and five others were injured when a 2011 Toyota Corolla in which they were passengers ran off a county road, struck a mailbox, crossed through a ditch and a yard before it hitting a tree.

The other five have been released from hospitals.

Sheriff Martin Pace says the accident is being investigated.
