Crawford, MS (March 10, 2022) – On Thursday morning, March 10, two people were hurt in a tractor-trailer accident that happened on a major highway in Crawford.
According to Mississippi Highway Patrol officials, the accident happened at 7 a.m. on US-45. Police confirmed that a Dodge minivan was traveling in the area when it was suddenly struck from behind by a tractor-trailer due to reasons that are not fully known. This caused the tractor-trailer to overturn, leading to extensive damages.
Several responders, including local paramedics and fire crews, were called to the scene to help those in need. Two people were inside the minivan, identified as Albert and Sharon Miller. Albert Miller and the driver of the tractor-trailer, Yancy Kirk, were both hospitalized. They are expected to recover from their injuries.
The roadway was blocked in multiple lanes following the collision, which led to delays in the area. Police quickly worked to clear the scene.
No further details have been released but the investigation remains ongoing.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
Truck Accidents in Mississippi
Commercial trucks are some of the largest vehicles that navigate our roads in the state of Mississippi. This means that, when an accident occurs, it is more likely to cause severe damages than other accidents on our roadways. In one recent year’s time in the U.S., over 110,000 people were hurt in truck accidents caused by the reckless acts of others. Truck drivers are expected to be some of the safest drivers on our roads but this is not always the case. These accidents still take place in the blink of an eye throughout Mississippi every year. If you have been hurt in a truck accident caused by another party, you should speak with an attorney who has your best interests in mind.
