Crawford, MS (May 31, 2022) – Around noon on Tuesday, May 31, a two-vehicle collision with injuries happened at an intersection in Crawford.
According to Mississippi Highway Patrol officials, the accident happened around noon at the intersection of US-45 and MS-792. A man identified as Charles Edward Stennis was driving a log truck in the area when he attempted to cross over at the intersection. The front of the log truck collided with the right side of a Ford pickup truck driven by Richard Anthony Prishmont.
Paramedics, fire crews, and several other local responders were immediately called to the scene to help those in need. Both of the involved drivers were rushed to Baptist Memorial Hospital for treatment of their injuries. Their conditions are not yet known.
The roadway was blocked in the area of the intersection for some time. This led to delays until the scene was cleared.

Truck Accidents in Mississippi
Mississippi actually sees a large percentage of truck accidents every year. In just one year, it is estimated that approximately 2.1% of large truck accidents in the U.S. happen in the state of Mississippi. This means that Mississippi falls into the top 20 highest state percentages when it comes to truck accidents. Because trucks are so large compared to other vehicles on our roads, they are capable of causing catastrophic damage when these accidents do occur. Truck drivers are supposed to be some of the safest drivers on our roads. However, this does not always happen and truck drivers sometimes engage in reckless acts. If you have sustained injuries in a truck-related accident, you should speak with an attorney who has your best interests in mind.
