SOSO, MS (WDAM) - An unidentified woman was killed and another person went to the hospital following a one vehicle accident in Soso Sunday.

The accident happened on Soso Big Creek Road at around noon. The woman driver was traveling west bound when she lost control of the Ford F-150 truck she was driving and slammed into a utility pole. The force of the collision caused the pole to snap in two and fall onto the truck crushing the woman.

The male passenger who had been riding in the bed of the pick-up was thrown from the vehicle but suffered only moderate injuries.

The collision downed power lines but Dixie Electric workers were able to reroute power to customers resulting in minimal power outages in the area.

Jones County Sheriff Department official says high speed likely played a role in the accident.
