Authorities discovered an accident scene on US Highway 61 Sunday in which a driver perished.

Tire tracks led authorities to the vehicle, which was found in a wooded embankment along the side of the southbound lane of Highway 61, approximately half a mile north of its intersection with Oak Ridge Road.  The driver, who was traveling alone, unfortunately did not survive the accident.

It is unclear exactly when the accident took place, but there is reason to believe it happened overnight or very early Sunday morning.

The identity of the driver is still being determined and will not be released until the appropriate notifications have been made to the family.

Officers with Mississippi Highway Patrol, Warren County Sheriff’s Office and Warren County Firefighters are on the scene to extract the vehicle, and the Warren County Coroner has been dispatched to the scene as well.
