Sheriff: 2 killed when pickup truck rolls into creek
MARIETTA, Miss. (AP) — A Mississippi sheriff says two people died when a pickup truck they were traveling in slipped off a narrow bridge and rolled into a creek.
Itawamba County Sheriff Chris Dickinson tells news outlets that 21-year-old Joseph L. Moore and 24-year-old Sara Sides appeared to have died of drowning.
A passerby spotted the vehicle in the water Monday morning and called 911, but Dickinson says the accident is believed to have happened sometime after 11:30 p.m. Sunday.
The sheriff says the pickup truck that Moore and Sides were traveling in slipped off the edge of the single-lane bridge and rolled into the creek.
