HERNANDO — Authorities say a computer instructor at Northwest Mississippi Community College was killed in a one-car crash on Interstate 55 north of Hernando.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol says 29-year-old Pedres Finley was headed from his home in Como to work at the school’s DeSoto campus in Southaven when he lost control of his SUV around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday

DeSoto County Coroner Jeff Pounders tells The Commercial Appeal that Finley had to be extricated from the vehicle after it flipped over when it went off the right side of I-55 and hit a tree.

Pounders says Finley was airlifted to a local hospital where he later died.
