TODDLER DIES IN ONE VEHICLE ACCIDENT

HOUSTON – A 2 1/2-year-old Chickasaw County toddler died early Thursday in a one-vehicle accident.

Marqintas Moore, 30 months old, of Houston died in the wreck.

The wreck occurred shortly after 6 a.m. on state Highway 15 north of Houston in Chickasaw County. Mary Moore and her daughter were traveling north in a 1995 Nissan when she apparently lost control of the vehicle and it left the roadway.

Moore was not wearing a seat belt and Marqintas was not in a child-restraint seat, a Mississippi Highway Patrol dispatcher said.

The accident is still being investigated.
