An early morning crash has claimed the life of a Prentiss County man.

Johnny Taylor, 19, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash last Friday morning on Mississippi Highway 30 near the County Road 3330 intersection, said Mississippi Highway Patrol Troop F Public Affairs Officer Sgt. Gary Stanton.

Stanton said it appears Taylor was traveling east in a 2000 Dodge Ram when his vehicle left the roadway and struck several trees. There were no other occupants in the vehicle and no other vehicles involved in the crash.

Stanton said the crash remains under investigation by MHP.
