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.”
He said DeFrance ran into the pole about 10 p.m. DeFrance was taken by ambulance to Merit Health Biloxi where he died about 1:40 a.m.
