PT: county lines type brief

PONTOTOC - Funeral arrangements were incomplete Tuesday for a motorcyclist who was killed in a Monday evening accident in Pontotoc County.

Roger Brott, 34, died of injuries he received in the accident that occurred about 6:30 p.m. at the intersection of state Highways 15 and 76 in Pontotoc.

Luther Wages, who was traveling north on state Highway 15 in a 1987 Dodge Dakota, was preparing to turn onto Highway 76 when he collided with Brott, who was traveling on Highway 15 on his motorcycle, said Cpl. James McGregor of the Mississippi Highway Patrol.

The impact forced Brott, who was wearing a helmet, from his Harley Davidson motorcycle onto the pavement. While he was on the ground, a light-colored, or possibly white, car rolled over Brott and kept going, McGregor said.

No citations had been issued in connection with the accident.

Authorities are looking for the person who was driving the vehicle that ran over Brott of the Longview community in Pontotoc County. Anyone with information is asked to call their local law enforcement agency.
