BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (AP) - The Hancock County Coroner says a man who was driving north in a southbound lane on Mississippi 603 collided with a truck and his passenger died at the scene.

Coroner Jim Faulk tells local news outlets the two vehicles crashed about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Faulk says the driver of a pickup tried to swerve to avoid the car in his lane, but he was not successful.

He says the man, who was driving the car, was taken to the hospital.

Faulk says he will release the identity of the woman who was killed after her next of kin is notified.
