Off-duty EMR helps five thrown from vehicle on I-220

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Emergency responders rushed to I-220 and Hanging Moss Road to help rescue five young adults involved in a single vehicle accident around 1:00 a.m. Sunday.

Jonnequia Cavett, a certified EMR firefighter with the American National Guard was driving by at the time and called 911.

Cavett stopped and got out of her vehicle and helped the victims.

She said they range in age from 19 years-old to 22 years-old.

They were thrown from a white Navigator they were riding in. 

Cavett said the SUV flipped four times after the driver tried to swerve from a deer.

"Everything was flooding on me because I was trained to be a first responder and I'm like should I stop what should I do and when I got out the kids gashes everywhere. It was just really devastating to see young people my age in a bad car wreck like that," said Cavett.

The condition of each of the accident victims is unknown at this time.

We will update this story as more information becomes available.
