One dies in accident

A two-vehicle accident on I-269 North, near the Highway 302 on-ramp, claimed the life of a 12-year-old boy Thursday of last week, according to coroner James Richard Anderson.
He said an SUV driven by Nicholas Yeager Sr. entered I-269 and ran into the back of a metal trailer being pulled by a pickup. The driver lost control, and his Dodge Durango left the road and flipped, Anderson said.
Nicholas Yeager Jr. was pronounced dead on the scene by the coroner, who was called to the area at 11:59 a.m. July 6.
The Yeagers were from the Hernando address area, the coroner said.
The driver of the pickup was not injured, according to Anderson.
