Pearl River County middle school student killed in bicycle accident


A 13-year-old student at Pearl River Central Middle School was killed Tuesday night after he was hit by a car while riding his bike.

Pearl River County Coroner Derek Turnage said Gabriel Lossett was hit near Old U.S. 11 and Family Lane when he rode into traffic.

Turnage said Gabriel was taken by ambulance to Highland Community Hospital where he died.

"He had multiple traumas on scene and they tried to stabilize him at the hospital so that he could be airlifted somewhere to better treat his traumas, but he didn't make it," Turnage said.

The accident is under investigation by the Pearl River County Sheriff's Office.
