2 killed in crash near Starkville

STARKVILLE — Two men were killed and a third hurt Wednesday night in a one-vehicle accident just outside Starkville’s city limits.

Oktibbeha County Coroner Michael Hunt identified one victim as 22-year-old Lemario Stallings. Hunt says the name of the second victim was being withheld pending a positive identification.

An injured passenger was taken to a Starkville hospital. His condition and identity have not been released.

Authorities say it appears the car veered off the road and hit a utility pole. An investigation was continuing.
