A wreck in Southeast Alabama Tuesday claimed the life of a Cantonment man.

Alabama State Troopers said a 1996 GMC Sonoma driven by Corey Smith of Cantonment collided with a 2007 GMC Yukon driven by a 17-year old in Ashford, Ala., east of Dothan near the Georgia state line.

The teen driver of Yukon escaped without injury before it burst into flames and was consumed by fire.

Smith was transported to Southwest Alabama Medical Center in Dothan where he later passed away from his injuries.

The accident remains under investigation by Alabama State Troopers.

    Very sorry to hear about Corey. Praying for his family, Kelly and friends that go way back to the days at Tate High School.
