BURNSVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - The Mississippi Highway Patrol confirms a crash in Tishomingo County left one person dead.

Around 4 p.m. Wednesday, troopers responded to a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of MS 365 and CR 294, north of Burnsville.

Master Sgt. Ray Hall says Donovan Cain, 31, of Iuka, was traveling north in a 2007 Ford F-150 on MS 365 when he apparently pulled into the path of a southbound 2000 Mercury Mountaineer, driven by Crystal Rayburn, 22, of Savannah, TN.

Rayburn received serious injuries from the crash and was taken to a local hospital.

Timothy Williams, 45, of Savannah, TN, was ejected from Rayburn's vehicle and was pronounced dead on the scene.
