JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - A wild ride Tuesday through the streets of Laurel afternoon resulted in several accidents and sent a Jones County woman to the hospital.

The chain of events began when Missy Smith Holifield of Rustin was involved in an accident on Hillcrest Drive. 

Holifield left the scene of the accident and then proceeded to Ellisville Boulevard and turned onto Doncurt Street where she struck two more vehicles, according to police. 

Holifield did not stop there. She traveled about a quarter-of-a-mile and turned into Williams Transportation where she took a loop around the parking lot, traveling at high speeds, Laurel police officials said.

Holifield then drove her Lexus through one of the bay doors of the building and slammed into a parked 18-wheeler.

"We're looking into it at this time as an accident, but we also are going to see what the motivation was," said Jones County Sheriff Alex Hodge.

Holifield was taken to South Central Regional Medical Center where she is under observation.

No other injuries were reported. Charges have not been filed at this time.
