One person was killed in a single-vehicle accident Friday night in Lamar County.

Just before 6 p.m., Lamar County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the accident in the 4400 block of Old Highway 11, near Windridge Drive.

“The vehicle left the roadway and struck a culvert and flipped a couple of times,” Lamar County Sheriff Danny Rigel said. “There were two people inside the vehicle, a man and woman, the female died at the scene, and the male was taken to Forrest General with what is believed to be non-life threatening injuries.”
