HINDS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -
A truck plunged from a bridge into the frigid waters of Hinds County Creek Wednesday afternoon. The accident happened just west of Pocahontas, off Highway 49 sometime after 4 p.m.
According to the Hinds County Sheriff's Department, a man was driving a gray Ford F-150 on Kennebrew Road when he lost control. The unidentified motorist crashed through a bridge guard rail.
The vehicle then landed in the waters on its side. Although the truck was not submerged, the driver's side was in several inches of water.
The man was able to climb from the truck. Officers at the scene said the driver suffered cuts and bruises and was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The water flowed swiftly in the rain swollen creek, and the road was blocked for more than two hours while a giant crane removed the pickup from the waters.
One area resident, who frequently travels Kennebrew Road, said large numbers of deer cross the rural roadway and often cause accidents.
"Knowing this road, my guess is deer and they tried to get back on where it met the guard rail. I can see where the vehicle may have gone airborne and tore into the railing. It's sad but it's a likely thing around here, because like I said, people come through at high speeds," said Kin Palmer who lives about two miles from the crash site.
Investigators said a passerby saw the crash and helped the motorist get to safety before calling 911. The Pocahontas Fire Department was also responded to the scene.
