OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - Two people died in a horrific accident early Thursday morning near the base of the Ocean Springs Bridge. It happened around 5 a.m. on Highway 90, near McElroy’s on the Bayou. A WLOX reporter at the scene said the pickup truck appeared to have hit the guardrail and flipped.

Three people were traveling in the truck, and all three were thrown from the vehicle. All were taken to a hospital, where two were declared dead. The victims ages are 19 and 24, but their identities have not yet been released. It’s not clear how serious the third person’s injuries are at this time.

Traffic was impacted for most of the morning as police worked to reconstruct the accident scene. By 10:30am, all lanes of Hwy 90 were reopened to traffic.
