Fairview High senior killed in two-vehicle wreck
Fairview High School students will honor their classmate, Lewis Wyatt Beam, 17, who died in a car wreck Friday evening with a service at the school gym Sunday.
Beam, a senior and member of the high school band, was killed in a two-vehicle wreck on Alabama 69 currently under investigation by the Alabama State Troopers. Beam was apparently killed instantly when he was struck on his driver’s side by a 2002 Chevrolet truck driven by Michael Pair, 56, of Falkville, Cullman County Coroner Steve Rodgers said.
The wreck occurred about 5:15 p.m. at the intersection of County Road 1534. Beam was driving a 1998 Mercury and wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, troopers said.
