HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -
Harrison County Deputy Coroner Brian Switzer said two people were pronounced dead in wrecks in Gulfport and Long Beach on New Year's Eve and early New Year's Day.
Switzer said a car flipped over at around 3:30 Tuesday morning in Gulfport. The man driving was headed eastbound on O'Neal Road near the 1400 block of Simpson Road when he reportedly ran off the road into a ditch. He was not wearing a seat belt and was pronounced dead on the scene, Switzer said. Another man, who was in the passenger's seat, was transported to Garden Park Hospital.
Switzer said the driver died from blunt force trauma to the head. The victim's name has not been released until family members are notified.
Another accident in Long Beach resulted in the death of 32-year-old Joshua McCoy of Gulfport. Switzer said the accident happened at 11:43 p.m. McCoy was headed westbound in his silver, Infiniti on West Railroad Street near 4th Avenue in Long Beach. That's when McCoy reportedly struck a Toyota Tundra carrying two men.
Switzer said the truck was knocked on its side and both vehicles were totaled.
"Speed was a factor in this wreck," Switzer said.
McCoy was not wearing a seatbelt; however, the passenger in his car was wearing one. That passenger along with the two in the truck was transported to an area hospital. Information on their current condition wasn't immediately available.
Information on the condition of those hospitalized wasn't immediately available. Switzer said he is waiting on toxicology reports to determine whether alcohol was a factor in either wreck.
