LEIGHTON/BRICK HATTON – Two Ohio residents lost their lives in a single vehicle crash on Second Street Tuesday night.

The crash occurred around 7:00 p.m.

The driver and passenger of a 2008 Ford Focus, who were from Cincinnati, Ohio, were killed when their vehicle left the roadway and struck a tree on the driver’s side.

Both occupants of the vehicle were pronounced dead on the scene by Colbert County Deputy Coroner Matt Moore.

The names of the victims will not be released until the next of kin are notified.
