This is a press release from the Jones County Fire Council.
While Moselle units were on the scene of a wreck on I-59, 911 dispatch requested that Moselle firefighters respond to the scene of another vehicle accident on Moselle Ovett Road.
Upon arrival, firefighters and Emergency Medical Responders found a heavily damaged passenger van and several victims suffering from moderate injuries.
According to reports, the driver lost control of the vehicle and slammed into a tree, which caused the vehicle to turn on its side, spin, and then flip right-side up as it came to a stop about 75 feet from the tree it had struck.
All three occupants sustained moderate injuries and were transported to South Central Regional Medical Center in Laurel for treatment.
Units on scene included Moselle and South Jones Volunteer Fire Departments, Jones County Sheriff's Department, and Jones County Fire Coordinator Dan McKenna.
Fire Apparatuses included Moselle Engine and Moselle Rescue. Several firefighters also came in their personal vehicles.
