Picayune, MS (November 1, 2020) – Around 7:30 p.m. on Friday night, October 30, ten people were injured in a hayride accident in Picayune.
The accident took place on Burnt Bridge Road near the area of Arrowhead Drive. An ATV was pulling a trailer full of people who were on a hayride. Suddenly, the trailer was struck from behind by the driver of a pickup truck.
Due to the severity of the collision, numerous medical helicopters and multiple ambulances were dispatched to the scene. Ten people were taken to the hospital with critical injuries.
Police later confirmed that the accident occurred in an area where there were no street lights and the pickup truck driver did not see the trailer until the last second. The accident was so forceful that the trailer was pushed off the side of the road. Everybody on the trailer was unrestrained, which is why the injuries were so severe.
The roadway was blocked for a period of time as police cleared the scene.
No further details have been released. The investigation continues.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
