FORREST COUNTY (WDAM) -

A motorist was injured in a one-vehicle accident on Highway 49 that also caused a power outage and a second two-vehicle wreck.

It happened around 3:30 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of Pep's Point Road.  

Hattiesburg Police said a pick-up truck left the highway, struck a bridge and severed a power line.  

It knocked out power to traffic signals, which caused two other vehicles to collide.  

The driver of the truck was taken by ambulance to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.         

No one was hurt in the second accident.
