The Mississippi Highway Patrol said they are still investigating a vehicle accident that claimed the life of a man from Ripley, Mississippi. Officers arrived on the scene of late night accident last week on MS Highway 370 in Benton County, near the Tippah County line.
After arriving, troopers were able to determine that Michael S. Love, 55, of Ripley, was traveling eastbound in a 2004 Ford F-150, when he sideswiped a 1995 Plymouth Neon going the other direction. The Neon was driven by Kayla King, 24, of Ashland.
