Trooper Injured In Car Crash

Authorities are investigating a weekend crash that left a Mississippi state trooper and four others injured. Officials say a car driven by 23-year-old Hillary Naquin of Chauvin, Louisiana, crashed into the trooper's vehicle yesterday on Interstate Ten, north of Ocean Springs. Authorities say the patrol car had pulled off the interstate and onto an emergency turn-around when a car following a short distance behind left the road and hit the trooper broadside.

Sergeant Joe Gazzo of the Highway Patrol says both vehicles were heavily damaged. Gazzo says the trooper, 41-year-old Joseph McFall of Biloxi, suffered a broken nose and other head injuries. He was transported to a local hospital.

Gazzo says Naquin and three passengers also were treated for injuries.
