Jackson, MS (February 10, 2024) – A major car wreck was reported to police in Jackson on the evening of February 10.
At least one person suffered injuries in the collision that took place just before 9:00 p.m. on Interstate 10. Several responders were dispatched to the wreck site to help the individuals involved. The interstate was blocked just past Mississippi Route 613/Moss Point while emergency responders worked in the area to investigate the details of the incident and help the injured victims. At this time, few details concerning the nature of the crash have been reported. Police in Jackson are still investigating. All westbound lanes of I-10 were blocked for an extended period while emergency crews were present on the road, resulting in substantial traffic back-ups.
We hope for the full and fast recovery of those with injuries. No further information has been reported at this time.
Mississippi Traffic Accidents
Tens of thousands of traffic collisions occur in the state of Mississippi each year. These incidents end in injuries for tens of thousands of people and take the lives of around 600 individuals annually. Throughout the country, approximately 6 million car crashes happen each year, the majority of which are caused by driver error/negligence.
Unfortunately, over 94% of these crashes occur because of the actions of drivers who allow themselves to operate their vehicles while distracted, under the influence of alcohol, or while traveling at unsafe speeds. Driver fatigue is also another type of driver negligence often displayed among American drivers and those in Mississippi.
Sustaining injuries in a crash can be stressful and overwhelming. You may be stuck in the hospital with debilitating injuries while you face financial issues and emotional turmoil that stems from your crash. You may be pinned with steep medical care expenses, costs related to repairing or replacing your vehicle, or other expenses stemming from your accident.
If you believe your wreck occurred due to the negligent actions of another driver, your best bet to be able to make a full financial recovery is to contact a car crash attorney. A car crash lawyer can help you file a personal injury claim for financial compensation so you do not have to go broke trying to make ends meet after your accident. You may also be able to collect compensation for non-economic damages like pain, suffering, loss of life enjoyment, and more.
