INVESTIGATION INTO FATAL ACCIDENT

FULTON – Fulton police were still investigating the cause of a fatal wreck Saturday night in Itawamba County.

Fulton Police Chief Ray Barrett said a 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass driven by 15-year-old Laticia Dulaney flipped over several times as she traveled along Country Club Road Saturday night.

“How many times she flipped over, we are not sure,” Barrett said.

Dulaney died at the scene.

Barrett said the Itawamba Agriculture High School 10th-grader was following a friend home when she lost control of the vehicle.

Dulaney, who would have been 16 on July 5, did have a valid driver’s license, Barrett said.

Barrett said his department had not determined at what speed Dulaney was traveling. Delaney’s autopsy report should be available later this week, Barrett said.
