Teenage Couple Killed in Head-On Car Crash

Posted: Updated:

Authorities say Ryan Segers, 19, and Leslie Adams, 16, were killed Thursday night in a head-on car crash.

They say the couple was heading down Fisher Ferry Road, right outside Vicksburg. Segers lost control of his Mustang. He veered into on-coming traffic and hit an SUV. The couple was killed instantly from head and chest trauma.

A mother and daughter were in the SUV. They were taken to the hospital and later released.

Adams went to Vicksburg High School. Segers graduated from there last year. Friends say he was at Hinds Community College, studying to become a nurse. They also say the two were dating.

Authorities don't know if Segers was speeding or distracted. They're waiting to complete their investigation before making that determination.
