STARKVILLE -- A Columbus woman died Tuesday night in a single-car wreck east of Starkville.
Elizabeth Gore, 19, was traveling east on Highway 182 in a 1993 Toyota Corolla, about 1 1/2 miles east of the Starkville city limits, at about 10:15 p.m. when the accident occurred, Mississippi Highway Patrol Public Affairs Officer Brian Mobley said. According to Oktibbeha County Fire Services Coordinator Kirk Rosenhan, the vehicle "ran off the road" and hit an embankment or a driveway.
Highway Patrol officers were dispatched to the scene at 10:22 p.m.
"She was not wearing a seat belt," Mobley said.
Gore was transported to Oktibbeha County Hospital, where she was pronounced dead by Coroner Michael Hunt. The accident is still under investigation, Mobley said.
The accident occurred near the University Hills Superette.

"Lil mama", are you serious? The intent of your comment is good, but it's hard for me to believe that your grammar is truly that bad. If you speak that way in casual conversation, fine; but when you type exactly the way you speak you are perceived as being extremely ignorant.
My thoughts and prayers are with this young lady's family.

For JE,you seem very ignorant yourself to talk down on someone when their only showing their emotions to a very young lady who has left this earth.maybe you should take back what you said and maybe people wouldnt think you're IGNORANT for saying that harsh statement.

JE, you're the worst kind of troll. This is a pretty inappropriate forum for arbitrary chiding.

This is for JE and whom ever else has something to say about the way I wrote my comment, you do right to keep your real name a secret. I must have you know that I graduated Columbus High School with an A average, thank you. I'm also in the World's Greatest Air Force serving my country over in Italy, now when you can hang with that, then you can talk down on me all day long!. I was just writing the way we all do on a daily basis as friends and young adults on the computer b. s*ing everyday including LIZ!.!.!.
Thank you and R.I.P. baby girl

My prayers go out to the Gore family. I was able to watch Elizabeth grow up a little during her time at the Boy's and Girl's Club. I pray that God will give her parents the strength to overcome such a loss as her children will need them more than ever now. May God continue to hold and bless this family. `

There's not enough information here to understand exactly what happen. What was the cause of the accident? Was she speeding? Did she hit a pacth of ice or what? More infro is needed here before i can make a more better statement.

So there is no reason you should sorrow over her passing.She is in a way better place then she was before;a perfect place.God bless.
