SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

Several accidents caused traffic delays across South Mississippi Friday afternoon.

Gulfport police worked the scene of a single car crash on 28th Street, west of Pass Road. Two power poles were knocked down, and drivers were asked to take an alternate route to avoid the area.

State troopers worked two accidents on Highway 49. One happened near Highway 53 around 5:21p.m., when a Hyundai Elantra driven by Bianca S. Patton, 18, struck a Jeep Wrangler driven by James Poch, 65.

MHP Cpl. Benjamin Seibert said the Jeep overturned and its passenger, Carole Whitten, had to be transported to USA Medical Center in Mobile, AL, with life threatening injuries.

That accident is still under investigation.
