A person died in a one-vehicle crash Thanksgiving Day. It happened around 5:30 p.m. at 24th Street and 42nd Avenue.
The driver, 38-year-old Henry Barfield of Richland, Miss., but formerly of Meridian, died.
A female passenger was taken to a local hospital, but officials said the injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.
Officials said both occupants were wearing seat belts, but Barfield apparently lost control and left the road, and ended up hitting a tree.
