GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Eddy Phillips of Gulfport was killed Tuesday night when his pickup truck collided with an SUV and overturned on Highway 90.

Police said the Chevrolet truck was heading eastbound when it crashed near 21st Avenue, just after 6:30 p.m. Investigators said the truck collided with a Buick Enclave that was heading in the same direction.

Phillips, 55, lost control of his truck and crashed into the center median. The vehicle then overturned in the westbound lanes of Highway 90. He was pronounced dead at the scene, but his passenger was not hurt.

The driver of the Buick Enclave, an adult female, was taken to the hospital along with her passenger. They both received treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.

The westbound lanes of Highway 90 were shut down while the wreck was being cleared.
