PONTOTOC COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - A Wednesday evening rollover claimed the life of a Pontotoc man.
The Mississippi Highway Patrol said the wreck happened on Highway 278 near Highway 342.
According to trooper spokesman Cpl. Jason Roe, the accident threw someone out of the vehicle.
It appears Shawn Pettit, 45, was driving west and lost control of his car and overturned in the median, Roe said Thursday morning.
The 45-year-old man later died at the hospital in Tupelo from his injuries.
Roe said Pettit was not wearing a seatbelt.
