West Point Man Killed in Wreck

MONROE COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — Mississippi state troopers are investigating a single-car wreck that killed a West Point man Saturday afternoon.

Monroe County coroner Alan Gurley says it happened shortly before 5 p.m. on Highway 45 Alternate, just south of Highway 8.

Gurley tells WCBI Antonio Gardner was driving south on the road, when he lost control of his pick-up truck, causing it to flip over in the median.

WCBI was told Gardner wasn’t wearing his seatbelt, and was thrown out of the truck.

He was taken to a West Point hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
