Sheriff's department investigating late night crash that killed St. Martin man

JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Investigators in Jackson County are working to determine how a St. Martin man died in his car late Tuesday night.

Sheriff Mike Ezell said Derrick Van Rainey’s car was found in a ditch on Walker Rd. just off Rose Farm Rd. around 11:30 p.m.

Rainey, 55, was alone and unresponsive when deputies arrived, Ezell said, and medical personnel were unable to revive him.

Ezell said it’s possible Rainey had some kind of medical issue before the single vehicle crash, but he also noted it was extremely foggy at the time.

Ezell said the crash remains under investigation, and further details will be released at another time.
