Student Killed in Car Accident

Coroner Bill Harris said Thursday that 18-year-old Andrew J.
Jackson Thurmond IV, a freshman from Hoover, died shortly after 10
p.m. Wednesday.

The car in which he was riding apparently ran off the road at a high rate of speed, returned and collided head-on with a second vehicle, then spun and was hit broadside in the passenger side by a third vehicle.

The driver of the second vehicle was airlifted to Columbus
Regional Medical Center in Columbus, Ga., while injuries to others
were described as non-life threatening.

Harris said Thurmond was a passenger in a vehicle driven by
Scott Leighton, an Auburn University student whose home was listed
as Kildeer, Ill.
