A Marshall County teen was killed in a tragic accident last night when he reportedly attempted to climb out of the sunroof in a moving vehicle.
A news release from the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office says 19-year old Logan McNeely of Benton was the driver of a 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse on Wadesboro Road just after 7pm.
Riding in the back was 19-year old Zackery Smalley of Benton. Smalley reportedly started to climb out of the sunroof against the advice of McNeely and another passenger, and his leg would block the vision of the driver.
The loss of vision caused McNeely to swerve, throwing Smalley out of the vehicle and onto the roadway. Witnesses tried to revive Smalley, but he would die from his injuries.
