Corinth Police Chief Ralph Dance told the Daily Corinthian the victim was Broderick Boyd of 1117 Martin Luther King Drive. He was killed instantly about 3:52 a.m. Friday when his vehicle left Pinecrest Street in a curve and struck a tree near Garden Lane, said the police chief.
“This is so very tragic,” said Dance. “For a man to be taken from life at such a young age.”
Speeding is believed to be a factor in the fatal wreck, said the police chief. The victim was not wearing a seat belt.
“We ask everyone to please be careful while driving in Corinth,” said Dance. “And please slow down.”
(Note: The initial age reported in this wreck was wrong on the police report.)
