POWERS, MS (WDAM) - One man is in the hospital and another in police custody following a two vehicle accident Saturday afternoon.

The accident happened at around 4:30 p.m. on Highway 84 East and Eastview Drive in the Powers Community.

First responders say that a Ford Ranger crashed into the side of Nissan Maxima trapping the Maxima's male driver inside. It took firefighters about ten minutes to extricate the man from the vehicle while his family looked on.

The unidentified man was taken South Central Medical Center by Emserve Ambulance Service. The man's wife and two young children rode to the hospital in the ambulance with him.

The driver of the Ford Ranger was taken into custody at the scene by the highway patrol. No details on any potential charges were made available.
