STONE COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Two accidents on Highway 26 just east of Wiggins caused morning traffic trouble for drivers, and the delays aren't over yet.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol tells WLOX News after a two car accident just before 9am, a log truck went off the road and overturned as it tried to avoid the first wreck. No one was hurt.

The two car wreck has been cleared, so traffic is flowing again. However, the job of getting the logs cleared means Highway 26 will be closed again around 11am when an empty log truck is expected to arrive to remove the logs that spilled along the side of the road.
