A man is dead after a car accident on Highway 15 in Perry County.
Officials say 34 year old Donald Tharp of Jackson lost control of his car, crossed the center line, went through a guard rail and over an embankment.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
“He went through the guardrail, flipped over the embankment, and landed in the creek. It just looks like he lost control, but we're going to do a further investigation to see what we can determine,” Deputy Coroner John Collett said.
Police say they do not believe drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
