One person was killed and another suffered minor injuries in a car accident on Interstate 10 in Gulfport shortly after 4 p.m. Sunday.
Harrison County Coroner identified the victim as Joseph A. Revak, 39, of Long Beach. Revak was backing his pick-up truck down the shoulder of the east-bound lane of the interstate between the 33 and 34 mile markers. He apparently lost control, swerved into traffic, and was struck by another vehicle.
Revak died of head, neck and chest injuries. Hargrove said Revak was not wearing a seatbelt.
The driver of the vehicle that hit Revak's truck was not injured. The passenger was taken to Garden Park Medical Center with minor injuries.
