Booneville and Prentiss County are mourning the death of a high school student and athlete killed in a Sunday morning crash.

Booneville High School junior Logan Harr, 16, died in the crash on Mississippi Highway 4 just east of the Booneville city limits early Sunday morning, reports Mississippi Highway Patrol Troop F Public Affairs Officer Sgt. Gary Stanton.

Harr was a passenger in the 2016 Dodge Challenger which was westbound when it left the roadway and struck a tree.

“Moderate injuries were reported from the driver and third occupant of the vehicle,” said Stanton.

Harr was a two-sport athlete at BHS where he played both soccer and football.

“Please pray for the family of Logan Harr as we mourn his passing,” BHS Head Football Coach Mike Mattox posted on the Blue Devil Football Facebook group. “Logan was an outstanding young man and we are blessed that he was a part of our lives. He was our teammate, friend and brother and so much more. We will never forget him.”

Visitation for Harr is set for Thursday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Booneville’s First Baptist Church with a memorial service to follow.
