Gulfport man seriously injured in Hwy 90 accident

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Police are investigating whether a Gulfport man's diabetes may have contributed to a three car accident Monday night.

The accident sent seven people to the hospital, including a three-year-old girl. Most had only minor injuries.

David Raines of Gulfport was taken to Biloxi Regional with serious injuries, including a fractured neck. Raines' wife told investigators her husband is diabetic, so investigators are trying to determine whether his condition contributed to the accident.

The crash closed the eastbound lanes of Highway 90 between Beauvoir and the Kangaroo station for several hours.
