Columbia, MS (January 22, 2022) – Several parties were injured in a two-vehicle accident that occurred on a major roadway in Columbia on Friday, January 21.
According to the Mississippi Highway Patrol, the accident happened in the northbound lanes of MS-13 around a local Dollar General. The crash happened around noon when several individuals were traveling north in a red pickup truck when the vehicle started to make a left turn. The vehicle collided with a gold Buick headed south. The pickup truck went off the side of the road and sustained severe front-end damage as a result.
Paramedics, fire crews, and numerous other responders were dispatched to the scene. Two females and a minor child in the pickup truck were hospitalized with unknown injuries. The male driver of the Buick was rushed to the hospital by medical helicopter with more severe injuries.
Due to the severity of the accident, a portion of the roadway was blocked in the area for a period of time.
