Accident in Wiggins

Three people were critically injured late this afternoon when a truck went off the highway and flipped twice.
Two of the accident victims were rushed to hospitals by Life flight while a third was transported by ground. The accident occurred right around 5:30 this afternoon when police say the vehicle veered off the road and traveled nearly 400 yards before attempting to get back on the road.
This is when the truck lost control as it reentered the highway, resulting in the accident.
“The two that were transported by Life flight, they do have life threatening injuries. Right now we are in the early stages of the investigation to determine what happened. Right now we’re reviewing the evidence at the scene. We’ll process that later and we have some witness statements we are going to re interview.”
Stone County Sheriff’s Department cannot confirm or deny many of the details in the accident at this time.
