HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Officials with the Mississippi Highway Patrol tell us eastbound traffic on Interstate 10 was backed up for more than an hour Wednesday afternoon following a two vehicle wreck.

MHP Cpl. Benjamin Seibert said 45-year-old John Jacobs III, of Niceville, FL, was driving in the left lane near mile marker 29 when he drifted into the right lane and hit the car driven by 34-year-old Kristen Brown, of Boynton Beach, FL.

Seibert said both vehicles slid into the median, but Jacobs' SUV flipped several times.

Brown and Jacobs were both taken to Garden Park Hospital to be treated for moderate injuries.

Seibert said the left lane was blocked for more than an hour while emergency crews cleared the wreck.
