Student injured in wreck near Harrison Central

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - A high school student was sent to the hospital Tuesday morning after a wreck near Harrison Central High School.

Officials say the student was driving a pickup truck with passengers headed south on Highway 49 when the truck tried to make a U-turn at a cut-through just south of School Road. Investigators say a woman driving a sedan rear-ended the truck causing it to flip.

The truck then caught fire, but a passerby was able to put it out with a fire extinguisher.

A female passenger in the truck was taken to the hospital. The others involved were treated for minor injuries at the scene.
