IUKA – A man is dead after a one-vehicle crash in Tishomingo County early Wednesday morning.
The Mississippi Highway Patrol says Brian K. Roach, 50, of Iuka, was traveling east on state Highway 172 when he apparently lost control of his 1997 Ford Taurus, ran off the road and collided with some trees.
Troopers responded to the call at 6:30 a.m. The wreck occurred about one mile east of Iuka.
Roach died at the scene from his injuries.
A passenger in the car, Pamela Twitty, 43, of Iuka, was transported to North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo with serious injuries. Neither she nor Roach were wearing a seat belt.
The accident remains under investigation.
