97-7 Country WGLR

A man from Monroe is dead after a

one-vehicle crash Thursday morning

morning in Lafayette County. Authorities

say 22-year-old Brett D. Hutchison was

found dead when emergency personnel

arrived at the scene. The crash happened

on County Highway-G, just west of Argyle,

just after 9:30 am.

The investigation shows Hutchison

was driving west when the vehicle went

off the road and hit a bridge head-on.

Authorities say he was wearing

a seat belt at the time of the crash, and

that speed appears to be a factor.

The car was destroyed in the crash.

It’s the fourth traffic fatality this year

in Lafayette County.
