By NEMS Daily Journal

The Mississippi Highway Patrol continues to investigate an early morning, one-vehicle crash, on MS 364, that claimed the life of a Northeast Community College student.

Troopers responded to the crash scene at about 5 a.m., Sunday three miles east of Booneville, in Prentiss County.

Upon arriving it appeared Cameron L Bernal, 19, of Iuka, was traveling west bound on MS 364, when he apparently lost control of the 1998 Chevrolet S-10 he was driving.

The vehicle left the road and overturned several times. Bernal was ejected from the vehicle.

Bernal was pronounced dead at the crash scene. He was not wearing a seat belt.
