The Mississippi Highway Patrol continues its investigation into a crash that killed a Blue Mountain man.
James H Stagener, 75, of Blue Mounain, died Monday from injuries he sustained when his 1986 Chevrolet pick-up was hit from behind by 2008 Peterbilt, operated by William B Rakestraw, 44, of Blue Mountain, as they were traveling down Highway 15 South.
Stagener’s wife, Annie, who was also in the vehicle, was air-lifted to the MED in Memphis with severe burns. Rakestraw was transported to Baptist Hospital with minor injuries.
