The Mississippi Highway Patrol is still investigating an early Sunday morning one-vehicle accident that claimed the life of a Glen teenager. Troopers responded to Miss. Highway 2 near Kossuth at approximately 4:45 a.m. Upon arriving it appeared Steelie Mincy, 18, of Glen, was traveling east, when she apparently lost control of her 2003 Cadillac Escalade. Her vehicle left the roadway, collided into a ditch, then overturned several times, said the MHP. Mincy was airlifted to North Mississippi Medical Center with life threatening injuries, accordingly to the MHP. Landon Blake Baswell, 19, of Glen, was ejected from the vehicle during the crash and received fatal injuries. He died at the crash scene. Baswell was a student at Northeast Mississippi Community College in Booneville. This is the second unbuckled teenage fatality Troop F has recorded in the last five days.
