JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A Jones County man sustained serious injuries on Monday night when his Chevrolet pickup left Reid Road near Buckley Road in the Powers Community and flipped.

Units from Powers Volunteer Fire & Rescue and Glade Volunteer Fire & Rescue responded to the incident just before 11 p.m. and reported an adult male unresponsive but breathing in the vehicle. A passerby had stopped to render aid to the injured driver and assisted initial arriving rescue units with patient care.

Firefighters, medical first responders and EMServ medics extricated the victim from the heavily damaged pickup utilizing a backboard and he was placed upon a waiting stretcher. 

The victim was transported by EMServ Ambulance Service to South Central Regional Medical Center in Laurel with a Powers Medical First Responder riding along to assist the paramedic.

The force of the crash sheared the rear axle off the pickup which ended up down a steep embankment in the tree line.

Powers Command 1, Powers Rescue 2, Powers Rescue 3 and Glade Heavy Rescue responded to the incident. Units from the Jones County Sheriff’s Department and Jones County Fire Coordinator Dan McKenna also responded to the crash scene.

The cause of the accident is under investigation by Sheriff’s deputies.

The identity of the victim was not released pending notification of family members.

All emergency response units were back in service shortly after midnight following the incident response.
