Freetown man dies in wreck

A Freetown man was found dead at the scene of a wreck Tuesday night in southwest Lawrence County.

Stephen L. Springer, 48, suffered internal injuries, according to a Lawrence County Police Department report. Coroner Rob Herr said there would be an autopsy and that Springer's family has been notified.

When Bedford Fire Department was called at 7:39 p.m., it was reported that Springer was barely breathing, police said. Once firefighters arrived, the ambulance crew said Springer had died but that extrication tools were still needed to free Springer from the wreckage.
