Jackson, MS (December 27, 2022) – On Saturday, officials in Hinds County responded to a traffic accident that resulted in injuries. At around 6:10 p.m. on December 24, the Mississippi Highway Patrol responded to an accident on Interstate 55. According to reports from the Highway Patrol, a crash has blocked the southbound lanes of the interstate. Before the intersection of Lakeland Drive and Interstate 25, the incident caused delays on the right side of the highway. The Highway Patrol and the fire department came to the scene to assist the injured. As paramedics treated the injured, firefighters and police attempted to clear the road. At least one collision participant was sent to a local hospital with injuries. The Highway Patrol is conducting an investigation into the crash, but no other information has been made public. We hope that the victims of this car crash recover quickly.
Car Accidents in Mississippi
Every year, tens of thousands of Mississippi residents are hospitalized as a result of motor vehicle accidents. The lion’s share of these accidents is entirely preventable.
As a result of the irresponsibility of drivers, innocent victims often get paralyzing spinal cord injuries, internal organ damage, and even catastrophic compound fractures. Among the leading causes of car accidents in the state are:
- Drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol while operating a motor vehicle.
- Drivers who are texting or chatting on their cell phones while operating a motor vehicle.
- The drivers do not yield the right-of-way.
- Drivers who change lanes carelessly.
- Drivers that disobey stop signs and red lights at intersections.
When drivers engage in these and other careless actions, they continue to put innocent cars and people on adjacent roadways at risk. If you were injured due to the negligence or recklessness of another motorist, you might be qualified to file a personal injury claim against them.
