BOGUE CHITTO, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say a Lincoln County road crew member died when his dump truck left the road, hit a tree and caught fire.

Sheriff Steve Rushing tells The Clarion-Ledger (https://on.thec-l.com/1uULwBl ) the accident occurred just before 11 a.m. Monday on Calvary Road near Bogue Chitto (BOH’-guh CHIT’-uh).

Deputy Coroner John Riggs declined to identify since some family may not have been notified.

He says the body has been sent to the State Crime Lab for autopsy.

The accident remains under investigation.
