MADISON COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - An investigation is underway to determine whether a medical condition may have contributed to a fatal wreck near Canton Wednesday.

The accident happened in the northbound lanes, just south of the Nissan plant.

The driver of the truck was 59 year old Bill Collins.

Collins was killed in the crash.

Madison County Coroner Alex Breeland says an autopsy should help determine whether Collins had a medical condition that caused him to lose control of the truck.

Collins was an attorney in Canton.
