Jackson, MS (April 1, 2022) – On Thursday evening, March 31, a head-on collision took place at an intersection in Jackson that took one life.
According to Jackson Police, the accident happened near Jackson State University at the intersection of University Boulevard and Terry Road. Two vehicles were traveling in the area at the intersection when they both entered the intersection at the same time. This caused them to forcefully collide with one another head-on, leading to extensive damages.
Paramedics, fire crews, and several other responders were immediately dispatched to the scene to help those in need. The driver in one of the vehicles, identified as 71-year-old Linda Harris, was pronounced dead at the scene due to her injuries. Nobody else was hurt as a result of the accident.
The roadway was blocked in the area for an extended period of time. Police quickly worked to clear the scene.
No further details have been released but the investigation into the circumstances of the collision continues.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
