Driver disappears after I-59 vehicle accident

HATTIESBURG, MS - Just before 6:00 p.m., fire fighters responded to reports of a vehicle accident on northbound Interstate 59 near Hardy Street. But, once they arrived, the driver was nowhere in sight.

In a search for the driver, emergency crews looked alongside the interstate and even in the woods for the owner.

The driver of the Chevy Trailblazer spun out of control and landed in an embankment, according to witnesses. No other vehicle was involved in the accident and no injuries were reported.

A wrecker cleared the vehicle from the scene. The cause of the accident is under investigation.
