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. Initial reports stated that the adult female occupant in the vehicle was not breathing, but firefighters on scene stated that she was alive and conscious when deputies first arrived, according to the Jones County Fire Council.
