One person is dead and another severely injured in a one-vehicle crash that occurred early Tuesday morning on Fisher Ferry Road, about 2 miles inside Claiborne County.

Goods said both victims were Warren County residents. He identified the fatality as 22-year-old Caroline Simrall of Vicksburg. The other person in the car has been identified as Chandler Roesch.
Simrall was declared dead at the scene. Roesch was taken by ambulance to Merit Health River Region. He was then flown to University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, where he is in critical condition, according to a hospital spokesperson.
The wreck remains under investigation, Goods said.
