JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Southern District Commissioner Tom King visited the deadly intersection of Highway 84 and Magnolia Road Wednesday afternoon.

King announced that the state will close the intersection in January. He said this intersection has claimed the lives of too many people, mainly due to drivers failing to yield to the right a way.

King said once the intersection is closed drivers will have to go down the highway and make a U-turn in order to get to the opposite side of the road.
