Trucker reportedly unaware he clipped vehicle that overturned

STAR, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Investigators say the truck driver, who clipped a car that rolled over Saturday in Rankin County, wasn't aware he caused the crash.

It happened in the southbound lane of Highway 49 in Star near the Piney Woods campus.

M.H.P. Trooper Eric Henry said the 18-wheeler driver, Herbert Hall of Mobile, was located at the D'Lo Truck stop, eight miles from the accident scene.

Hall told authorities he did not know he made contact with the Toyota Camry.

The car came to rest on its side in the median.

The driver of the Camry, 29-year-old Kaysee Counts of Magee, was transported to University Medical Center.

Investigators said Counts' injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

Hall faces no charges.
