Two People Killed In Seperate Accidents In Hancock County

Two people were killed in separate accidents in Hancock County Saturday night. The first was a two car accident which happened shortly after five p.m. on I-10.

The Highway Patrol says there was a lot of water on the road. Spokesman Joe Gazzo says the first car, a 1999 Mitsubishi, hit a patch of water, hydroplaned and swerved off the road into a ditch. Two men got out of the car and were attempting to push the car out when, about five minutes later, another car did the same thing and collided with the first car.

A passenger in the second car, 58-year-old Carolyn Magness, of Slidell, La., was killed in the accident. A total of five people from both cars were injured.

The second accident happened on Highway 90 near Harbor Drive around 10:30 p.m. Saturday. The Highway Patrol says a Chalmette, La. man walked out in front of a car and was killed. The man was identified as 39-year-old Roger Helsel.

The driver of the car, 31-year-old Kelly Lee of Bay St. Louis, was charged with DUI causing death and leaving the scene of an accident.
