A Tuesday morning wreck has resulted in one fatality

Two Lincoln County men were involved in an accident that resulted in a fatality.

On Dec. 29, Mississippi Highway Patrol Troop M responded to a two-vehicle accident at approximately 10:44 a.m. Troopers arrived on Hwy. 583 near Bethel Road to learn that a 1995 Dodge Van was traveling south on Hwy. 583 when it crossed the center line and collided head-on with a loaded, 1999 Peterbilt log truck that was traveling north on Hwy 583.

The collision killed the driver of the Dodge, 25-year-old Cory Hickson of Bogue Chitto.  The driver of the Peterbilt was James T. Richardson, a 55-year-old man from Brookhaven.  Richardson sustained minor, non-life threatening injuries.
