OLIVE BRANCH, Miss. (AP) - A two-vehicle crash east of Olive Branch has claimed the life of a teenager.

Mississippi Highway Patrol Sgt. Leslie White said the tractor-trailer's driver, 50-year-old Robert Newman of Paragould, Ark., was attempting a turn when the crash occurred.

Newman was not seriously injured.
