Pedestrian Struck and Killed in Jackson County
A 79-year-old pedestrian was struck and killed Sunday morning in Jackson County. George Gray was hit around 12:30 a.m. along Tucker Road, north of Ocean Springs.
Gray was walking north in the middle of the far southbound lane and was wearing dark clothes. The impact caused Gray to hit the windshield of the car and land in the middle of the road. A few minutes before he was struck, another driver saw Gray and avoided hitting him.
That driver called 9-1-1 to report the man in the road and turned around to check on Gray, but it was too late.
The driver of the car who hit Gray has not been charged.
