Vida DeShondrell Byrd (5075)

11/10/2009: Vida Byrd died when she was ejected from a vehicle following a high speed chase that began with the robbery of a Corinth bank. The first officers on the scene at a branch of SouthBank reported shots fired as a vehicle allegedly attempted to run them over while leaving the parking lot around 4:30 PM. Police say the robbery sparked a pursuit which ended when the driver lost control of their SUV on US 72 near Iuka. The SUV rolled at least once, coming to rest on its roof and ejecting both occupants. Byrd was killed; Asa Nakeen Warren was injured in the crash and died from his injuries in December.
