A second vehicle rollover occurred within a 24-hour period in Jones County this weekend.  

Sunday afternoon, units from Southwest Jones and Moselle Volunteer Fire Departments responded to the scene of a SUV rollover on I-59 near Exit 80.  

Upon arrival, firefighters found a heavily damaged SUV lying on its roof on the shoulder of the road.
