1 dead after car strikes fire truck responding to an accident in Mississippi

One person is dead and others were injured following two separate traffic accidents Sunday night in D’Iberville, Mississippi.

Officials say a D’Iberville fire truck was blocking traffic while first responders worked a three-vehicle accident on I-10 west close to the Lamey Bridge Road exit just before 9 p.m.

A car hit the fire truck, said D’Iberville Fire Chief Gerald Smith. The driver of the car, who was the only person in the automobile at the time, was taken to Merit Health Biloxi in serious condition, where officials say he died overnight.

According to Smith, those involved in the first traffic crash received minor injuries and no emergency workers were injured when the fire truck was struck.

The identity of the victim is yet to be revealed.
