A deadly head on-collision claimed the life of 29-year-old Joshua Higginbotham early Monday morning.

The accident occurred in Stone County on Highway 26 and Walton Road. Higginbotham was a Lucedale resident. He leaves behind his wife, Alyssa, and four children.

News 25 spoke with his sister, Krickett Kelley, who recalls the heart-wrenching accident.  “The driver of the semi swerved into his lane. Josh didn’t even know what hit him. He died on impact. He died on impact and he didn’t know anything. If you know him, you loved him. If you didn’t get to meet him, you missed out on meeting a great person.”
