Car Hydroplanes on highway 49 causing accident

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Traffic was backed up just after 9:00am Monday when a car hydroplaned on Highway 49.

The wreck happened just north of Pearl River Community College, when a silver Toyota Celica hydroplaned, losing control and sending it across the median into oncoming traffic. The car crashed into another vehicle, a Mazda Miata, that overturned, and went off the road. Paramedics arrived at the scene shortly after the crash. The passenger of the second car was sent to a local hospital with injuries, but no one else was hurt in the accident. No reports yet on the condition of the injured passenger.
