Chicot Memorial

LELAND, MS (Ben Caxton) — The Mississippi Highway Patrol is still investigating a two-vehicle crash in Washington County that claimed the lives of four people. The accident occurred shortly before 7:00 PM Friday night along US Highway 82 near Ann Drive Inn Road. 45-year-old Dennis Smith of Greenville was traveling east when he apparently lost control and crossed over into the westbound lanes and collided into a 2006 Kia driven by 64-year-old Jimmy Vance of Leland. Both drivers, along with two passengers in Vance’s vehicle 59-year-old Leenell Boleware of Leland, and 44-year-old Angela Cooper of Tupelo were killed at the scene. The Mississippi Highway Patrol says that none of the victims were wearing a seatbelt. Troopers are still trying to determine whether or not Smith may have been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.
