CLARKDALE — Two people died Thursday morning in a three-car wreck on Highway 145.

    The Mississippi Highway Patrol identified the deceased as Veronica Mabry, 61, of Enterprise, and Roger Apperson, 55, of Meridian.

    The accident occurred at 7:43 a.m. about 2 miles north of Clarkdale, near New Hope Baptist Church, said MHP Cpl. Andy West, who is the public affairs officer for Troop H and District 6.

    The driver of a third vehicle, Laura Hester, was transported to an area hospital for evaluation, but did not appear to have life threatening injuries.
