Lauderdale County coroner Clayton Cobbler reports that a 35-year-old man from Gainesville, Texas died this weekend on Interstate 20.

Federico Garcia was killed in a one-vehicle accident at mile marker 126 around 3:30 a.m. Saturday. He was killed on impact. It is unclear what caused the accident.

Bad weather is to blame for three accidents on I-20/59 Sunday night. One vehicle flipped on the southbound lane near the Russell exit. Two males were transported to Meridian area hospitals due that accident.

Two other vehicles were in minor accidents due to lack of visibility and heavy rains. No injuries were reported.
