HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

An accident on the interstate in west Harrison County caused major traffic delays near Pass Christian Saturday morning.

According to Mississippi Highway Patrol, a white vehicle went off the road near exit 20 in the westbound lane. Officials say the driver "over corrected" himself, causing the vehicle to flip. State trooper Chase Elkins said the vehicle was carrying five people who suffered minor injuries in the crash. 

Officials initially said that someone may be trapped in the vehicle, but Elkins says nobody had to be cut out.

Traffic was backed up for around an hour as Harrison County sheriff deputies and state troopers worked to clear the scene.
