Youth killed in Boaz wreck

BOAZ – The stepbrother of a man who died earlier this week in an auto accident was killed this morning in a two-vehicle wreck on Route 14, officials said.

Wood County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Shawn Graham confirmed Vienna resident Brendon Michael Wigal, 18, died shortly before 6 a.m. near Glendale Road after his 1999 Buick Skylark crossed left of center and hit a 2008 Jeep Wrangler head on. The collision is under investigation, he said.

Wigal was the stepbrother of Jacob Michael “Jake” Cunningham, 22, of Waverly who was killed Monday in a single-vehicle wreck on St. Marys Pike.

The driver and a passenger in the Jeep sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
