Vicksburg, MS (October 17, 2022) – One person lost their life in a multi-vehicle crash involving a fed-ex tractor-trailer in Vicksburg. The wreck occurred at around 8:30 a.m. on Friday morning, October 14.
A statement from authorities shows that the Mississippi Highway Patrol responded to the crash scene, located near Bovina, to find a 1998 Chevrolet Silverado that had collided with the rear end of a FedEx tractor-trailer.
The two vehicles crashed, causing a chain reaction that then involved a 2021 GMC Yukon, a 2021 Mazda CX-9, and a 2013 Chevrolet Camaro. The driver of the Camaro was transported by paramedics to Merit Health Hospital with injuries of an unknown nature.
The driver of the Silverado, identified as 42-year-old Gary Bevis, from Horatio, Arkansas, lost his life in the accident. He was pronounced deceased on-site. The Fed-Ex truck’s driver sustained no injuries. The occupants of the Yukon and the Mazda also were not injured.
Authorities in Warren County continue to investigate the details of the accident.
We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of the deceased victim. We hope for the full recovery of the injured party.
Mississippi Vehicle Collisions
Numerous auto accidents are reported per year in the state of Mississippi. Some of these wrecks are only fender-benders, however, a percentage of them end in serious injuries and even death for involved parties. In 2016, close to 700 people lost their lives in Mississippi car wrecks. Unfortunately, the majority of these collisions happen due to the actions of negligent drivers. Driver negligence has become a serious problem in the United States and throughout Mississippi. At this time, most of the auto crashes reported in the Magnolia State are caused by drivers who are drunk, over-tired, or driving at unsafe speeds.
