CLAY COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) -- A West Point man has died after a single-vehicle accident early Saturday morning near the Tibbee community.

Clay County Coroner Alvin Carter said Wendell Lushunn Bennett, 39, was driving west on East Tibbee Road when the accident took place.

Carter said the initial call came in at 1:17 a.m.

Bennett was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the force of the wreck.

Carter said he pronounced Bennett dead at the scene at 2:06 a.m from multiple site blunt-force trauma.

Because of the nature of the injuries, no autopsy will be performed.

Two other passengers were transported to Columbus for their injuries, but there's no word on their condition.

Carter said the cause of the accident remains under investigation by the Clay County Sheriff's Department and Clay County Coroner's Office.
