Teens wreck while taking shot friend to hospital

Staff Writer

   Three teenage boys were injured in a wreck Sunday after a hunting accident near Holcomb.
   According to Sheriff Alton Strider, a 16-year-old Grenada County male was accidentally shot through both legs while deer hunting shortly before 4 p.m.
   His friends loaded him into a 2006 Chevrolet pickup and rushed him east, to the hospital, in Grenada.
   The trip wasn’t a pleasant one, according to Mississippi Highway Patrol Public Affairs Officer Tony Dunn.
   A juvenile driving the truck veered off the road, hit some trees, overturned and landed upright in the ditch.
   “The driver was not injured,” Dunn said.
