LONG BEACH, MS (WLOX) -

LONG BEACH, MS (WLOX) - A Long Beach teenager ended up trapped in his car Monday morning after authorities say he ignored a traffic warning.

Assistant Police Chief Don Bass said sometime after 4am, 18-year-old Mason Dardy drove around a barricade that closes off a portion of Cleveland Avenue near Kerr Street. Bass said Dardy hit a parked excavator, which trapped him in the car.

Dardy wasn't found until construction crews arrived at work around 6:45am. He was taken to Memorial Hospital Gulfport and later air lifted to a Mobile hospital.
