Houston, MS (January 19, 2021) – On Monday, January 18, a man was killed in a fatal accident that took place on a major roadway in Houston.
Police confirmed that the accident took place in the southbound lanes of MS-15 when an adult woman was driving a red Ford Free when her vehicle suddenly struck the rear of a Cadillac. The Ford came to a stop but the Cadillac ran off the side of the road, where it overturned.
Paramedics were dispatched to the scene of the accident. The passenger in the Cadillac, identified as 54-year-old Charles Wofford, was ejected from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision.
The driver of the Cadillac, who was not identified, was taken to North Mississippi Medical Center by medical helicopter. Their condition is not yet known.
