A Pontotoc man died in a late night Thursday collision with a tractor-trailer on McCullough Boulevard.

Ronnie Walls, 40, of Pontotoc, was killed when the 1990 GMC van he was driving apparently collided with the rear of a 1995 Freightliner on McCullough Boulevard just west of Adams Farm Road, said Tupelo Police Chief Jerry Crocker. The accident occurred just before midnight.

Walls died at the scene as a result of multiple trauma injuries, said Lee County Coroner Roy Barnett.

No other injuries were reported in the accident, Crocker said. Tupelo police are still investigating the collision.
