One dead in head on collision in Pearl River County

PEARL RIVER COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A 25-year-old Carriere man is dead following a head on collision Friday just before 8 p.m. on Highway 607 half a mile south of I-59 in Pearl River County, according to Mississippi Highway Patrol Corporal Jason Gazzo.

According to Gazzo, Max Parish was driving a 2007 Honda Civic north on a southbound lane.

Traveling south on the southbound lane was 26-year-old Deontra D. Brown and passengers 35-year-old Shawonda Morgan and 6-year-old Damorea D. Brown all of Gulfport.

The two drivers crashed into one another. Gazzo said Parish was pronounced dead on the scene.

Brown was transported by AAA ambulance service to Forrest General Hospital. Morgan was life-flighted to Forrest General and Brown was life-flighted to USA Children's and Women's Hospital.

"At this time we don't believe alcohol was a factor," Gazzo said.

Gazzo said a head on collision is one of the worst types of collisions.
