EASTABUCHIE, Miss. (WDAM) - The Forrest County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a crash that left two people dead and sent a third to the hospital this week.

Forrest County Deputy Coroner Lisa Klem said the crash was reported just before midnight on Eastabuchie Road near Lynn Ray Road. Investigator John Tryner, with the Forrest County Sheriff’s Office, said the wreck involved only a Ford F-250 pickup truck.

Klem said 38-year-old Jason Dye, of Ovett, and 19-year-old Dakota Holmes, of Richton, died at the scene. A third person was taken to the hospital, but officials could not provide an update on their condition.

Tryner said the crash remains under investigation, and more details will be available when the final report is complete. The Hattiesburg Police Department assisted with crash scene reconstruction.
