Nathan Shepard Death – A teenager was killed in a car accident in Salt Rock on Monday morning, and the neighborhood is in sorrow. Nathan Shepard, 18, was known by friends for his work ethic and his ability for making people laugh. Shepard received his high school diploma from Lincoln County last year. He had been working on bridge construction, according to his acquaintances. His ultimate goal was to launch his own construction business. “It doesn’t feel real at all,” Shepard’s friend Chelsea Adkins said.
Location of incident
Shepard was killed in a head-on collision on state Route 10 at around 6 a.m. on Monday, according to the Cabell County Sheriff’s Department. The woman in the second automobile, who was 41 years old, was taken to the hospital. In front of Bernard Beckett’s home, the accident took place. Beckett referred to the location in question as “a bad place right there.” It’s hazardous. He said the area has seen many accidents, including one that was fatal a few years ago.
On the wrestling squad for Lincoln County, Will Leach first encountered Shepard. “I’m just gonna miss him,” Leach said. “I think what I’ll miss most is just the joy he brought to everything, no matter what it was.” “Nobody will ever be the same without Nathan,” Adkins said. He was a wonderful young man. Never in my life did I imagine that when I woke up, Nathan wouldn’t be there. He had such a life ahead of him.” The crash’s cause is still under investigation, thus the Cabell County Sheriff’s Department has not yet made any comments.

The five French crew members were killed when a tiny plane monitoring migrant trafficking routes for the French government headed for the coast of Libya crashed shortly after takeoff on Monday, according to authorities. Soon after takeoff at 7:20 a.m. local time, the twin-prop Fairchild Metroliner banked to the right and slammed into the ground in a tremendous explosion, according to video of the incident shared on Facebook from a dashboard camera. All five victims, according to Malta’s authorities, were French.
It claimed that the flight was a part of a French customs surveillance operation tracking the routes of illegal people and drug trafficking fleeing the lawless shores of Libya. The majority of the tens of thousands of migrants who pay people smugglers to transport them by boat toward Europe leave from Libya. The government later said that the plane was scheduled to return to Malta in a few of hours without making any other stops after initially reporting that it was traveling to Misrata, Libya.
Due to its proximity to Libya, Malta’s international airport is utilized for surveillance flights there. The French customs operation, according to the administration, has been operational for almost five months. According to a notification on the airport website, the airport was closed for four hours while debris was cleaned, delaying more than a dozen planes. According to the government statement, the Metroliner was leased to a Luxembourg business and registered in the United States.
