New Albany man dies in two-vehicle wreck

A two-vehicle crash Saturday night on Highway 30 East resulted in the death of a New Albany man.

According to Public Affairs Trooper Ray Hall with the Mississippi Highway Patrol, Colby Pannell, 25, died at approximately 6:30 p.m., after he was ejected from his truck when it struck another vehicle at the intersection of Highway 30 East and County Road 150
Hall said Pannell drove off the right side of the highway and struck a vehicle that was at the intersection.  Pannell’s truck apparently overturned several times before he was ejected.
Pannell died from injuries at the scene of the accident.  He was not wearing a seatbelt, Hall said.
Occupants of the other vehicle were not injured.  The accident remains under investigation by the Mississippi Highway Patrol.
