Mattress in road causes four-car accident in Forrest County

FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Authorities say a mattress which had fallen into the middle of the road caused a four-car accident that slowed traffic on Interstate-59 Saturday afternoon.

The Highway Patrol said two vehicles swerved to try and avoid the mattress, which had fallen out of a moving trailer in north Forrest County near Eatonville.

Those cars collided and one of them sideswiped two other vehicles parked in the emergency lane.

No one was injured, but traffic was slowed and diverted around the accident scene until it could be cleared.
