A Clarke County sheriff's deputy and a Lauderdale County woman died in separate traffic accidents on Tuesday.
In Clarke County, Deputy Robert Goodwin, 64, of Stonewall, was struck about 9:45 a.m. by a 2003 Chevrolet pickup truck driven by Charles Goodwin, 70, of Pachuta, said Sgt. Ronnie Carter of the Mississippi Highway Patrol. Carter said the two men are not related.
Goodwin was supervising prisoners while they picked up trash from the side of the highway. Carter said the cause of the accident is still under investigation.
In Kemper County, Shandy Bell, 24, of Route 1 in Daleville, died in a two-car accident that happened about 4 p.m. on Highway 39 North, about 10 miles south of DeKalb.
Carter said two other people were injured in the accident that remains under investigation.
Carter said that Bell was traveling north and Carolyn Bond, 61, of Meridian, was traveling south when the accident occurred. Carter was not sure of the extent of Bond's injuries.
Carter said a passenger in Bond's car, Judy White, 51, was transported to Jeff Anderson Regional Medical Center.
