Deceased Mineola teen gives life as organ donor

WOOD COUNTY - The 15-year-old Wood County boy killed in a hit-and-run crash last week is credited for saving several lives, including that of another teenager.

Jacob Burrell was an organ donor, and this weekend four of his organs were used in transplants, including his heart, which was given to a 15-year-old from Mississippi.

Meanwhile, authorities say they’ve found the vehicle allegedly used in the crash. No arrests, however, had been made as of Monday evening.
