A Willisburg man died on Oct. 23 after an automobile accident that occurred around 5:15 p.m.
Johnnie D. Mitchell, 49, of 2412 Polin Road in Willisburg, was driving west on Polin Road in a 2004 Buick Ranier when he ran off the road on the right side, according to a report from the Washington County Sheriff’s Department.

Mitchell then turned left, which sent the vehicle across the road to the other side, then over corrected to the right, causing the vehicle to flip. The vehicle rolled over three times down the road, approximately 80 feet, according to the report. The vehicle stopped roughly 240 feet from where it left the roadway.
According to the report, Mitchell was ejected and pinned underneath the vehicle. Mitchell was freed by Willisburg Rescue, but was pronounced deceased by the Washington County Coroner.
