Multiple people injured in Highway 49 crash
At least two people are injured after a collision in Gulfport this afternoon.
Witnesses say a woman driving a Nissan Murano was traveling north on Highway 49 when a blue truck traveling westbound on South Swan Road pulled out in front of her.
Firefighters had to pry open the driver’s side door of the blue Dodge Ram in order to remove the male victim. Both drivers were transported to a nearby hospital for medical treatment. Witness Barry Brown said, “He went across and all of a sudden, I see him jump in the air. The truck went in the air and rolled on to the ground in the ditch there and we had to stop so it wouldn’t hit us.”
AMR, Gulfport police and Gulfport fire responded to the crash.
