Identity still pending after fatal wreck

FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Workers spent Thursday morning cleaning up debris from a fatal two-vehicle accident in Forrest County Wednesday, as authorities try to determine the identity of a driver who was killed.

A crew spent several hours removing hundreds of pieces of plastic pipe from a wooded area along Interstate 59.

The pipe was being hauled by an 18-wheeler that was involved in a fiery crash with a pick-up truck.

The driver of the 18-wheeler was killed and two people in the truck were injured.

The Forrest County Coroner's Office has not yet identified the man who died.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol is investigating.
