One killed in accident Sunday on Cayce Road
A Marshall County teenager died in a one-vehicle accident early Sunday on Cayce Road.
Edgar Bolanos, 16, of 48 Sharp Cove, Byhalia, was killed when the 1998 Mitsubishi Montero Sport he was driving north on Cayce left the road and rolled, and he was ejected from the vehicle, coroner James Richard Anderson said.
The accident happened about a mile north of Deer Creek Road.
Anderson said a deputy on patrol drove up on the scene about 1 a.m. A passenger in the wrecked vehicle – who suffered just a few cuts – was trying to flag down someone to help.
The coroner said rescue personnel administered CPR. Anderson got the call at 1:48 p.m. and the victim was pronounced dead at 2:14 a.m.
