Deputy Coroner: Speed, alcohol factors in fatal Biloxi crash

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

A Biloxi man died after crashing into a light pole in the 2100 block of Pass Rd. on Tuesday night. Harrison County Deputy Coroner Brian Switzer said speed and alcohol were factors in the crash.

Switzer said 21-year-old Isaac Defrance was driving westbound on Pass Rd. when he lost control of his vehicle and hit a light pole. Defrance’s car caught fire, and a passerby reportedly stopped to pull him out.

Switzer said Defrance was taken to Merit Health Biloxi, where he died just before 2 a.m. Wednesday.
