Hinds County Sheriff’s officials say a 25-year-old Byram man has been fatally electrocuted.
It happened Thursday on Ford Road in Terry.
Authorities say a dump truck loaded with asphalt hit a power line. According to Major Pete Luke, it caused the truck to be electrically charged.
A paving company was working on a private driveway when the accident happened.
Major Luke says co-workers attempted CPR on the victim, but he did not respond. The man has not been identified.
