A Biloxi man was killed Tuesday night in a single-car accident on Pass Road.
Harrison County Chief Deputy Coroner Brian Switzer said Isaac DeFrance, 21, died from injuries suffered in a crash in the 2100 block of Pass Road in Biloxi.
Switzer said DeFrance was westbound when he hit a pole.
“The accident is under investigation by the Biloxi Police Department, but it looks as if speed played a role in the accident,” Switzer said. “DeFrance was not wearing his seat belt at the time of the accident.”
