Man calls police and then drives car off cliff in Marion County

Posted: Updated:
MARION COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A Morgantown man drove his car into a well-known ravine in Marion County on Thursday afternoon.

Bobby Scarborough drove into the crevasse known locally as Red Bluff. He called the Marion County Sheriff's Office beforehand and announced his plans.

When authorities reached the scene, Scarborough was crawling out of the giant hole and his car was at the bottom. Scarborough was transported to Forrest General as a priority one.

Authorities say it is safe to assume it was not an accident, but a reason is not known.

A tow truck crew spent an hour retrieving the vehicle from the bottom of the canyon. Scarborough's condition is unknown at this time.
