Teen Killed In Head-On Crash

HARRISON COUNTY (WLOX) -- UPDATE: The Harrison County Sheriff's Department says 29-year-old Bryan Mooney was traveling south on Vidalia Road at about 1 pm Friday afternoon, when he swerved suddenly to avoid a slow moving car in front of him.

Mooney then crossed into the North Bound land and struck a car.

A passenger in that other car, 13-year-old LaShae Necaise, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver, 17-year-old Lindsey Ladner and another passenger 15-year-old Marcus Ladner were taken to Memorial hospital with injuries.

The victims were all removed from the wreckage with the "jaws of life."

Mooney was also taken the hospital after being charged with reckless driving, no driver's license and no proof of insurance.

The Sheriff's Department says additional charges could be added.

A 13-year-old girl was killed Friday afternoon in a two car accident. The head-on collision happened in front of Corey's Quick Stop on Vidalia Road in Harrison County.

LaShae Necaise died at the scene. Three others were injured and taken to the hospital.

"A Suburban traveling southbound on Vidalia crossed over into the path of an Oldsmobile Alero headed north, and they collided head on, killing one person and sending three people to the hospital. As far as I know, it's the first death on the coast since the holiday started," Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove said.

Necaise was not wearing a seat belt. Hargrove urges everyone to be extra careful on the roads this busy Memorial Day weekend. He says buckle up, slow down and allow yourself some extra time.
