The Mississippi Highway Patrol is still investigating an afternoon, head-on collision that claimed the life of a Tishomingo County man on Mississippi Highway 25 north.

Troopers were dispatched to the scene about 4 p.m., Thursday. Upon arriving, it appeared Michael J. Clark, 33, of Iuka, was traveling north in a 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe, when he apparently crossed the center line and struck a 2003 Ford F1-50, driven by Charles W. Sneed, 78, of Tishomingo.

Clark was transported to North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo with moderate injuries.

Sneed was transported to Baptist Hospital in Iuka where he died from injuries sustained in the crash.
