Cars collide, truck flips on HWY 49

Just after 8 this morning, an accident halted traffic on Highway 49 just south of Harrison Central High School.

The driver of a GMC Sonoma was southbound when they attempted to make a U-turn into the northbound lane. Another vehicle rear-ended the pickup causing it to cross the median and roll over.

Multiple agencies, including Mississippi Highway Patrol, Harrison County Fire, and Gulfport Fire and Police responded.

The passenger in the Sonoma was taken to an area hospital with minor injuries. That passenger was the only person involved that was not wearing a seat belt.
