Crash Claims a Life

A one-vehicle wreck at 5:20 Friday morning claimed the life of a Toomsuba man.

The Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department said 21-year-old Robert Austin Knowles was alone when his vehicle left Bolen-Long Creek Road and hit a tree.

The wreck happened in a curve in the road, but Chief Deputy Ward Calhoun says it's not yet known what caused the crash.
