Charges remain a possibility for a Canton man following a fatal two-car accident that occurred just outside of Canton early Saturday morning.

Cpl. Kervin Stewart with the Mississippi Highway Patrol said that just after 2 a.m. on Saturday, MHP was advised of a two-vehicle crash on Mississippi 16 east of Canton in Madison County. 

Stewart said that preliminary reports of the investigation indicate that a 2003 Dodge Dakota, being driven by Debrico Griffin, 23, of Canton, was traveling eastbound when his vehicle collided into the rear of a 2003 Toyota 4Runner that was also traveling eastbound. 

The collision caused the driver of the Toyota to lose control and crash into a tree. The driver of the Toyota 4Runner, who Stewart has identified as Pamela B. White, 52, of Canton, died as a result of her injuries. 

Griffin was taken to a local hospital after a warrant was requested to determine if he was operating a motor vehicle under the influence. 

Stewart said that more information will be released pending the results of the blood test and the pending investigation.
