GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Gulfport police are working an accident on Highway 49 near Dedeaux Road.

Sgt. Damon McDaniel reports a Tahoe was driving southbound around 7 a.m. when a Cadillac turned in front of the SUV. This caused the SUV to flip on its side.

We're told crews are working to clear the scene now but traffic is backing up. Drivers are asked to use alternate routes and avoid this area.

McDaniel said the driver of the Cadillac was taken to an area hospital.
