One Man Dead in 4-Wheeler Crash

Lauderdale County, Miss. Lauderdale County authorities say a man died overnight Saturday in a 4-wheeler accident.

Chief Deputy Ward Calhoun tells Newscenter 11 that 56-year old Joseph Blanks, Jr. died after his 4-wheeler left the road near Sanders Road and Causeyville Road. Calhoun says it appears the 4-wheeler hit a pine tree and that Blanks died as a result of his injuries.

At this time, investigators say it does not appear that foul play was involved. However, autopsy results are pending.
