Death investigation

Southaven Police Monday reported the investigation into a fatal accident in I-55 in the city last weekend was being continued.

Police stated the accident took place Saturday afternoon. A man was stopped along the interstate and was outside of his car when he was hit by another vehicle.

The driver of the car that struck the man did stop and assistance was called for the victim, who was taken by ambulance to Baptist Memorial Hospital-DeSoto, but later died of his injuries.

No identities of the people involved have been released by the police department which said more information would become available once the investigation is completed.

No charges had been filed in the investigation as on Monday morning, either.
