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.
