A Northwest freshman is dead following a single-car accident that occurred on Slocum Road in Hernando on Wednesday, April 29.
A DeSoto County work crew found the body of 19-year-old Charles Samuel Hearington in his car at about 9:40 a.m. the morning after the accident.
According to a report in the DeSoto Times-Tribune, DeSoto County Coroner Jeff Pounders said Hearington's 2000 Honda Civic veered off the south side of the road and flipped over as it went down a bank. He said the vehicle was overturned in a drainage ditch in about five feet of water.
Pounders said the cause of death was most likely accidental freshwater drowning.
Hearington was an employee of Game Stop in Hernando and a graduate of Hernando High School. He was a Computer Science major at Northwest-DeSoto Center.
He is survived by his parents, Jack Edwin Hearington and Sherry Lynn (Carter) Hearington, two brothers, Art Chaput and Matt Hearington, his grandmother, Mary F. Hearington, his aunt, Peggy Hearington Lane of Memphis, and two uncles, Vernon Earl Carter of Paris, Texas and Donald Ray Carter of Beasley, Texas.
Hernando Funeral Home handled funeral arrangements and burial was at Memorial Park Cemetery in Memphis.
