A two-car collision Friday night in D’Iberville left a 17-year-old boy dead, a 17-year-old girl seriously injured and another person in critical condition, police say.

D’Iberville police Capt. Tony Myers said a 2012 Chevrolet Spark traveling westbound on Interstate 10, just east of Interstate 110, entered the median and struck a 2003 Mazda Tribute that was traveling in an eastbound lane. The incident occurred about 11:30 p.m., police say.

The driver of the Chevrolet Spark, identified by Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove as 17-year-old Nicholas Hall of Vancleave , and the passenger, a 17-year-old female, were taken away from the scene by ambulance, Myers said.

Hargrove said Hall was pronounced dead at 12:15 a.m. Saturday at Merit Health Biloxi.

The female passenger is in serious but stable condition, police say.

The driver of the Mazda Tribute, Myers said, is in critical condition and was in surgery Saturday morning.
