JONES COUNTY Miss. (WDAM) - A rollover collision late Saturday night on Mississippi 29 north left two injured, including one who was critically injured and airlifted from the scene.

The Jones County Fire Council said Soso, Hebron, Calhoun and Pleasant Ridge volunteer fire departments responded about 11:50 p.m. Saturday to a report of an accident between between Northridge Road and the Soso city limits on Mississippi 29.

Upon arrival, firefighters found two occupants had been ejected from a Nissan sedan, one with what appeared to be minor injuries and one with what appeared to be critical injuries.

According to a witness, there were three persons in the vehicle at the time that it was traveling at a high rate of speed south on 29 heading south from Soso.

The car lost control, ran off into the ditch and flipped, coming to rest on its roof. The sedan sustained major damage.

Emserv Ambulance Service responded to the scene with multiple ambulances.

Firefighters established a landing zone in the field right next to the collision scene and assisted getting the critically injured to the Rescue 7 helicopter for transport to Jackson for medical treatment.
