Madison, MS (January 23, 2023) – A traffic accident reported in the Madison area on Saturday morning left one person injured. At around 3:40 a.m. on January 21, the Madison Police Department responded to a crash that occurred on Interstate 55.
According to reports, the Madison Police Department was attempting to stop a 2010 Acura that was traveling at a high rate of speed while heading northbound on Interstate 55 during the early morning hours.
As the police attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver refused to stop and continued north on the road.
As the driver fled the scene, he became involved in the collision.
One person involved in the accident, identified as Willie James III, suffered injuries in the crash. He was transported to the University of Mississippi Medical Center, where he underwent emergency medical care.
The driver of the fleeing vehicle, 20-year-old Jacemeron Hampton, was subsequently arrested.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
We hope Willie James III is able to recover quickly following this crash.
Car Accidents in Mississippi
Every year, thousands of people are hurt due to traffic crashes reported in the state of Mississippi. Far too often, victims are hospitalized with spinal cord injuries, severe trauma to the head, and other significant injuries due to crashes that are caused by negligence. One of the most common causes of crashes that we see in Mississippi is drivers who are speeding.
When drivers are traveling at too high of a rate of speed, they are more likely to lose control of their vehicle. Regrettably, speeding also increases the severity of injuries that victims involved in crashes are left with.
