Around 9:30 p.m. units from Moselle, South Jones and Southwest Jones Volunteer Fire Departments responded to the scene of an SUV versus an 18-wheeler. 

When units arrived on scene they found an SUV with extensive damage to its rear-end near the shoulder of the road by Exit 80 in the southbound lane. 

They also found an 18-wheeler several feet in front of the SUV with some damage to its front end and partially blocking the right lane. 

No injuries were reported in that accident. 

While firefighters were working that scene, a call was made for a second wreck several yards behind the scene of the first wreck. 

Some of the firefighters broke away from the first wreck and responded to the second where they found three vehicles with damage. 

According to the Jones County Fire Council, two of the vehicles were partially blocking the left southbound lane and the third vehicle was on the shoulder.

The damage to all three vehicles was not considered major. However, two occupants from separate vehicles suffered minor injuries.

One was transported by EMServ ambulance to South Central Regional Medical Center in Laurel for treatment and the other was transported to the hospital in a personal vehicle.
