New Site man dies in car crash

A New Site man has died from injuries sustained in a late Monday evening, one-vehicle accident in Prentiss County.

According to the Mississippi Highway Patrol, the crash occurred Monday, at approximately 9 p.m., on MS Highway 4, near Siloam Road, in the New Site community.

Upon arriving, it appeared Ivan Nash, 41, was traveling east in a 1996 Dodge Dakota, when he apparently lost control of the vehicle, left the roadway, and collided into a tree.

Nash was taken to the MED in Memphis where he died Tuesday morning from injuries sustained in the crash.

The crash remains under investigation.
