Wreck claims the life of Ohio man
An Ohio man was killed in a one-vehicle wreck Monday evening on U.S. 61 South, south of the Vicksburg Municipal Airport.
The wreck occurred about 5:56 p.m.
Vicksburg Police Sgt. Bobby Jones said Mark Owens, 50, of Marietta, Ohio, was northbound on U.S. 61 South when the vehicle he was driving went off the highway on the left side of the road, struck an embankment and went airborne, tumbling end over end and ejecting him.
Deputy Warren County Coroner Ronald Regan said Owens was pronounced dead at the scene.
The cause of the wreck remains under investigation.
