VANCLEAVE, MS (WLOX) - A 22-year-old Vancleave man who became trapped inside of a burning vehicle Sunday night has died from his injuries.
Anthony Taylor, who was also paraplegic, was a passenger in a truck that somehow left Seaman Rd. sometime around 8:30 p.m. Monday.
The truck flipped, and hit several pine trees before landing on its side. Multiple witnesses were working to upright the truck and free Taylor when the vehicle then exploded.
Taylor was airlifted to USA Medical Center in Mobile with severe burns, and several others were taken to area hospitals for treatment.
Investigators are still working to learn why the truck ran off the road. Anyone with information that could help investigators determine how this crash happened, please call the sheriff's department at 228-769-3063 or 228-769-3014.
