HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

An early morning wreck on County Farm Road in Harrison County looked very scary.

A smashed up car sat on the two lane road, the driver trapped inside. We’re told that just after 5:15 Friday morning, the vehicle was heading toward the interstate when he collided with an 18 wheeler. Rescue teams had to cut apart the mangled metal to pull the car’s driver to safety.

He was conscious at the time emergency teams used the jaws of life to free him from the wreckage. The driver, who has not yet been identified, was taken to Garden Park Medical Center. There is no word at this time on his condition. 

County Farm Road near Interstate 10 has since re-opened.
