                Ole Miss student dies after sledding accident

                A University of Mississippi student died from  injuries he suffered after being thrown from a sled in the Highland Square neighborhood at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

                According to Lafayette County Coroner Rocky Kennedy, the 22-year-old student from Kentucky was flown off the sled after running into a sign and was taken to Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi where he later died from internal injuries. Drugs or alcohol were not a factor in the incident, Kennedy said.

                Kennedy confirmed the man was a student at Ole Miss but was withholding his name pending family notification. (February 25, 2015)
