KOSCIUSKO, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The man accused of causing a fatal accident, after avoiding a police roadblock in Kosciusko over the weekend, is behind bars this evening.

Thirty-one year old Nicholas Jackson of Sallis was removed from this Chevrolet Impala at gunpoint by officers after the wreck at Highways 35 and 12 in Kosciusko Saturday afternoon.

He was arrested for failure to stop a motor vehicle when directed by an officer, a felony, and two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer. Police say Jackson hit two officers when he ran the roadblock. Further charges are expected.

Sixteen year old Erica Holifield was killed in the accident. A 33 year old, driver Chasse Holifield, and a ten year old were ejected from the Camaro. They are being treated at the University of Mississippi Medical Center where they were taken by helicopter. A 3-month-old in a child restraint system was unhurt.

"Witnesses say he was going at a very high rate of speed, said Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman Tony Dunn. "From what we can determine right now nobody was wearing their seat belts."
