From the Mississippi Highway Patrol
The Mississippi Highway Patrol is still investigating a two-vehicle accident that claimed the life of a Ripley man. Troopers were dispatched to the late Wednesday night accident on MS 370 in Benton County approximately 1/4 mile from the Tippah County line.

Upon arriving it appeared Michael S Love, 55, of Ripley, was traveling east bound, in a 2004 Ford F-150, when he apparently side swiped a west bound, 1995 Plymouth Neon, driven by Kayla King, 24, of Ashland.
 
After colliding with King's vehicle, Love left the roadway and collided into a utility pole. He was ejected from the vehicle and died on the scene from injuries sustained during the wreck. He was not wearing a seat belt.
 
King was transported to North Mississippi Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
 
A passenger in King's vehicle was air-lifted to the MED in Memphis with serious injuries.
 
Both King and the passenger in her vehicle were wearing a seat belt.
 
The 11:45pm accident remains under investigation.
