JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Residents across Jones County are mourning the loss of a man after a fatal accident Saturday.

Isaac Holloway, 19, of Laurel, died after he was involved in a two-vehicle accident on Orange Drive in the Glad Community.

"[He was] the kindest, gentlest person that anyone could ever know," said William Holloway, Isaac's father. "I can't tell you enough what a good person my son was, and this whole community knows that."

Holloway said Isacc was an outgoing individual, and he was looking forward to starting a family and joining the military.

"There is nothing that I have ever seen that my son, if he was challenged, that he couldn't achieve," Holloway said.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation by the Jones County Sheriff's Department.

The driver of the other vehicle was arrested Sunday, but his charges are currently unknown.
