A single vehicle crash in Attala County Tuesday afternoon killed a family pet and sent two to the hospital after the car crashed at a popular accident site.

MedStat EMS, The Mississippi Highway Patrol, Attala Sheriff's Department, Attala Fire along with Zama and Providence Volunteers responded to the crash on Highway 19 South at 1:23 p.m.

First responders arrived on scene to find an accident at a very well known location for car crashes. Emergency personnel found one vehicle that had left the roadway and struck a tree causing heavy damage to the driver side of the car.
