Law enforcement temporarily closed off a portion of the highway until the scene could be secured and emergency medical assistance could respond.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the response, but Sheriff Steve Rushing said he could not comment on the case since the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is in charge of it.

MBI is expected to release a statement later this morning.
