PERRY COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - One person is dead and two children have been transported to hospitals after a wreck in Perry County.
According to Public Information Officer for MHP Troop J Brent Barfield, a Perry County Beat 3 county tractor was driving northbound on Highway 15 attempting to turn onto a county road.
The tractor was turning on the crest of a hill.
While the tractor was attempting to turn, a Chrysler van driven by 58-year-old Debra Sharp crashed into the right rear end of the tractor. The sidearm of a bush hog speared into the cab of the van.
Sharp was pronounced dead on the scene by the Perry County coroner, according to Barfield.
A 6-year-old male passenger was airlifted to UMC in Jackson, and a 13-year-old passenger was transported by ambulance to Forrest General.
