On Tuesday evening, Altee TenPenny lost his life in a car accident in Mississippi. According to the Mississippi Highway Patrol, the 20-year-old former Alabama running back was traveling on Mississippi Highway 1 when he veered off the roadway and struck a sign at approximately 5 p.m. The collision caused the vehicle to become airborne, overturning several times, and finally came to rest after it struck a utility pole. The impact ejected TenPenny from the vehicle, and he was transported by an ambulance to the hospital where he died from his injuries. TenPenny was passing through Mississippi on his way to his home in Arkansas. The accident is under investigation and police have not determined what caused the crash.
