MONROE COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) — A teenager is dead after a Sunday night accident involving his all-terrain vehicle.

Monroe County Coroner Alan Gurley has identified the teen as 16-year-old Clay Lee Thompson of Smithville.

According to the coroner, Thompson was riding his four-wheeler around 9 p.m. on Pearce Chapel Road when he lost control one mile west of the Alabama line.

The ATV went into the woods and down an embankment.

A teen riding with Thompson ran to a nearby home for help, and the Monroe County Sheriff's Department was called.  Deputies found the wreckage and Thompson's body.

Gurley says Thompson died from a head injury.
