Single-Car Wreck in Harrison County, MS Prompts Search for Additional Victims

Mississippi Head-on collision lawyer in Jackson, Mississippi

Harrison County, MS– May 1, 2018 (WLOX) – According to a report from WLOX, items found at the scene of a motor vehicle wreck prompted concerns that a baby might have been involved in the accident. The crash happened near the Delisle exit on I-10 when a woman lost control of her vehicle, which went all of the way across the median and the lanes on the other side of the highway without colliding with any other vehicles before it flipped over into the woods.

The SUV was heavily damaged by the crash, trapping the female driver inside of the wreckage until rescue workers could free her. She was airlifted away from the accident scene to a hospital for treatment, as rescue workers searched the scene for a baby that they believed might have been involved in the accident. A car seat and a bag of baby items were in the vehicle, but no infant was inside the vehicle when rescuers removed the driver. A thorough search of the area did not turn up any additional accident victims.

While it is likely that the baby whose car seat and baby care items were in the wrecked car was safely at some other location when the crash occurred, the description of the accident illustrates why single-vehicle accidents are the most difficult to investigate. The driver of the vehicle was likely rendered unconscious by the crash. Since she was unconscious, she was unable to provide any information to her rescuers about whether there had been a baby in the car with her or not. This left rescuers with only one option – to look for a baby that they weren’t sure they would find so that they could rescue the baby if they were at the crash scene.
