IUKA, Miss. (WTVA) — A driver is dead after a pickup truck apparently crashed into a ravine and caught fire early Saturday near Paden.
Tishomingo County Coroner Mack Wilemon said someone driving by saw the burning vehicle off of Highway 30 around 2 a.m.
Wilemon added he has a tentative identification of the person who died but wants to wait on a positive identification before releasing the person's name.
He does not expect that positive identification to come until next week.
