Authorities from OCH Medical Center and the East Oktibbeha Fire Department responded to a morning rush hour wreck on Highway 182 and 16 Section Road earlier today. An eastbound car was stopped on Highway 182—waiting to turn left onto 16 Section Road—when another car collided with the back end of the stopped vehicle. After hitting the rear end, the second car's momentum carried it into the opposite lane, and a minivan collided with the second car, and then slid off into a nearby drainage ditch. Two of the drivers were sent to OCH Medical Center, according to Oktibbeha County Fire Services Coordinator Kirk Rosenhan. The Mississippi Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
