Posted: Updated:

The Pike County Sheriff's Office says a single vehicle accident claimed the life of 21-year-old Travis Craig of Petersburg.

The accident happened just before 6:00 Sunday night on State Road 57 near County Road 550 north.

Deputies say Craig was the driver, and for some reason went left of center, hitting a pole. His vehicle overturned and deputies say Craig was thrown from the vehicle.

His passenger, and fiance, 21-year-old Crystal McCammon, also of Petersburg, was taken to Deaconess Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor.

Deputies say the couple was set to be wed next week.
