A 21-year-old Nauvoo man died in single car accident along The Trace West in Jasper Thursday night.

Walker County Coroner J.C. Poe said Jacob Matthew Bridier’s white pickup truck left the roadway and crashed into a telephone pole at around 8:30 p.m. Thursday.

Poe said first-responders found Bridier dead at the scene. In addition to the Coroner’s Office and Regional Paramedical Services, officers from the Jasper police and fire departments responded to the incident.

According to Poe, Bridier was carrying two passengers in his vehicle who were not injured in the crash.

Poe said the wreck occurred near a sharp curve located just east of Longleaf Drive on The Trace West.

Poe said he could not comment as to the cause of the wreck because it is still under investigation.
