The person who died after a two-vehicle wreck Saturday night in Jackson County has been identified as a Moss Point firefighter, officials said.

Lucas S. Morace, 35, lived in Ocean Springs.

The motorcycle Morace was driving and a pickup truck collided on Mississippi 57 near the Sunplex Center south of Interstate 10.

Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman Chase Elkins said it appears that Morace was southbound on a black 1981 motorcycle when the motorcycle collided with the front driver’s side of a blue 1990 Ford F-250. The pickup truck was pulling off of Sunplex Drive, he said.

The accident occurred about 9 p.m.

The crash is still under investigation, Elkins said.

A worker at the Moss Point Fire Department on Sunday said officials were not available for comment.
