Three Die Overnight In Separate Accidents

Michael Bicknell, 27, from Gautier died in a single-car accident Thursday morning.

A Jackson County Sheriff's Deputy told WLOX News the late model Jeep Cherokee was on Goffville Road when Bicknell hit a culvert and struck either a tree or a power pole.

Bicknell was thrown from the car and died instantly. He was not wearing a seatbelt, and investigators believe he was speeding.

Meanwhile, dental records may be the only way to identify the driver who caused another fatal accident in Jackson County. 

According to the Highway Patrol, that driver was going the wrong way on I-10. When the car reached exit 57, it hit an oncoming vehicle and started a chain reaction of accidents.

Two people died in the fiery collision. So far, the victims' names have not been released.
