Gulfport, MS – 7 Hurt in Collision on Hwy 90 near Anniston Ave

Gulfport, MS (October 1, 2023) – Seven individuals suffered injuries in a traffic collision on Sunday night in Gulfport. The collision site forced individuals traveling in the area to detour eastbound traffic away from the beach, and all drivers were urged to avoid the area. 

The collision occurred just before 8:00 p.m. on Highway 90 near Anniston Avenue on October 1. Reports show that one vehicle was flipped over in the midst of the highway due to the incident. 

EMS transported five individuals to area medical centers, however, one person was so severely wounded that they were life-flighted to a medical center in New Orleans. A seventh victim suffered injuries and was treated at the scene by paramedics. 

Traffic was detoured north off Highway 90 at Debuys Road near Cowan Road. At approximately 10:00 p.m., the eastbound lanes of the highway were still blocked while investigators worked at the scene. 

Authorities are still working to figure out how the incident occurred. 

Our thoughts are with those involved as we hope for their full recovery.

Mississippi Car Crashes

Car crashes happen all the time in the state of Mississippi and across the US. In the past decade, they have become the leading cause of death among individuals ages 15-20, mostly due to driver distraction. Distracted driving has become the most common cause of car crashes throughout the nation. The NHTSA found that over 90% of reported car wrecks happen due to the actions of distracted drivers.
