The Mississippi Highway Patrol is still investigating a single-vehicle crash on Mississippi Highway 366 that claimed the life of a Marietta man.

Troopers responded to the scene at approximately 5 p.m. Saturday, a few miles west of Marietta in Prentiss County.

Williams was partially ejected during the crash. He was not wearing a seat belt.

Williams died on the scene from injuries sustained in the crash.
