By NEMS Daily Journal

BELMONT – A collision between a motorcycle and a car ended in the death of a Belmont man Thursday night.
Ricky Holt, 53, died of injuries he suffered in the accident on U.S. Highway 25, about one mile north of Belmont at the intersection with Tishomingo County Road 49, said Coroner Mack Wilemon.
Apparently Holt was southbound on U.S. 25 when a car pulled out in front of him, and he was unable to stop. Wilemon said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Holt was wearing a helmet, which apparently was jarred off by the impact of the collision, Wilemon said.
The accident remains under investigation by the Mississippi Highway Patrol.
