A head-on collision on Highway 39 Sunday left one dead and injured another.
In a statement Monday, Mississippi Highway Patrol Sgt. Jameka Moore said Vance Miller, 36, of Lauderdale, was driving south on Highway 39 at about 3:30 p.m. Sunday when his Buick LeSabre collided with a Ford F150 driven by 62-year-old Meridian resident William Burcham.
“Vance Miller received fatal injuries from the crash and was pronounced dead on the scene,” Moore said in a press release.
Burcham was taken to a local hospital with moderate injuries, Moore said.
The crash is being investigated by Mississippi Highway Patrol.
