Deadly Night On Coast Roads

A Florida man is dead after a single car accident in Jackson County. The accident happened around 8:00 pm last night on I-10 at Highway 57. Highway Patrol officers say the rear tire blew out on the man's pickup truck, causing him to lose control. The truck then flipped into the median. 59 year old Robert Heath was taken to Ocean Springs Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Then, early this morning there was a three car accident on the I-10 bridge between Gautier and Moss Point. Police say the accident happened when one driver swerved to avoid something in the road and then hydroplaned into the guardrail. Two more cars were involved in the accident, one of them was spun around and hit head-on by an oncoming car.

All four people involved were taken to Singing River Hospital with minor to serious injuries.
