HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A two-vehicle accident injured one person on U.S. Highway 98 at Weathersby Road in Hattiesburg on Tuesday evening.

Hattiesburg police worked the wreck involving a Lamar County Sheriff's Office SUV and continue to investigate what happened.

Lamar County Sheriff Danny Rigel said the crash happened when two of his department's vehicles were on the way to assist another deputy who was chasing a suspect on foot.

Rigel said the units had their emergency lights and sirens on, and traffic was stopped at the intersection as they went through. According to the sheriff, a civilian vehicle pulled out in front of one of the LCSO units and caused the crash.

An ambulance transported an injured person to a local hospital for treatment. The deputy involved was not injured, though he was taken to the hospital in a department vehicle to be checked out, according to Hattiesburg police.  

Some lanes were blocked as officials cleared the scene.
